Mali revises its military agreements, signs new ones amid embargo

Mali’s Interim President Assimi Goita discussed major reforms undertaken within the army while speaking at its 61st anniversary Thursday in Kati, a town hosting one of the country's largest military camps.

"New agreements have been signed, always with the essential objective of securing Malians and their property," said Goita, the head of the ruling junta.

The transitional authorities have also requested a review of certain military cooperation agreements, he said, without elaborating further.

Prime Minister Choguel Maiga made a similar announcement earlier this month in an interview on Malian state television, citing the need to review military cooperation agreements between Mali and France.

"We want to reread the unbalanced agreements that make us a state that cannot even fly over its territory without authorization from France," he said.

The announcements come at a time when the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has placed member country Mali under an embargo by imposing border closures and economic sanctions.
