“And an update for you from Mali, where the peacekeeping mission on the ground continues to work closely with the delegation from ECOWAS, which is currently in Bamako, in the capital of Mali, our special representative and head of the peacekeeping mission El-Ghassim Wane took part in the meetings that the ECOWAS delegation was having. The mission continues to support the effort of ECOWAS, and calls on all actors to concern to cooperate fully with a view to a rapid resumption of normal course of the transition within the framework provided by the Charter. It is crucial that this crisis be resolved urgently as it constitutes additional challenge that would negatively affect the implementation of the peace agreement. For his part, the Secretary-General continues to follow the situation in Mali with concern, and continues to be engaged. Yesterday he had a couple of phone calls, one with Moussa Faki, the Chairperson of the African Union Commission, as well as the President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo in his capacity as Chair of ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government.”
