Mali - Nomination of governors of Taoudenni and Ménaka regions (January 19, 2016)


France welcomes the nomination of the governors of the Malian regions of Taoudenni and Ménaka at the Council of Ministers of January 19.

Following the high-level consultative meeting of the follow-up committee of the peace and reconciliation agreement on January 18 in Algiers, these nominations demonstrate the positive attitude of the signatory parties and their determination to move forward.

France actively supports the implementation of the peace agreement, to which we are providing financial support on the order of nearly 80 million euros for the period of 2015-2017.
