UN Security Council mission expected in Bamako on Saturday

Bamako, Mali (PANA) - A UN Security Council mission is expected in Bamako on Saturday for an official two-day visit, the Permanent Mission of Mali in New York announced in a statement.

"The main objective of this mission is to assess the political, security, humanitarian, human rights, development and transitional timetable situation as well as the state of implementation of the priority measures of the Agreement for Peace and Reconciliation resulting from the Algiers process by the signatory parties," it said.

The UN Security Council mission will meet with the transitional authorities, staff of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilisation Mission in Mali (MINUSMA), various parties involved in the implementation of the Peace and Reconciliation Agreement resulting from the Algiers process, as well as other national and international actors in the Malian crisis.

The mission is part of regular consultations between the government of Mali and the UN since the adoption in 2013 of Security Council resolution 2100 (2013) creating MINUSMA, said the Permanent Mission of Mali at UN headquarters.
