Algeria rejects any government change by force in Mali

Algeria “firmly rejects” any action aimed at changing the government in Mali by force and urges Malians to privilege dialogue for a peaceful transition, said Tuesday the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a communiqué.

“Algeria is following with great concern the recent developments in the Republic of Mali and affirms its categorical rejection of any action that would perpetuate the change of government by force, in violation of the basic principle of the African Union in this regard,” the statement said.

Algeria called on “all concerned parties to show a sense of responsibility and a preference for dialogue in order to preserve a peaceful and calm path for the transitional phase and to preserve peace and stability in the country.”

Algeria renewed, according to the Foreign Ministry’s statement, “its support for the transitional authorities in Mali, led by the Head of State, Mr. Bah Ndaw, which (Algeria) has been providing multifaceted support to it, with the aim of achieving a definitive return to constitutional order, on the basis of the commitments undertaken in accordance with The provisions of the Transitional Charter adopted on September 12, 2020, and approved by the United Nations, the African Union and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

The situation in Mali worsens after the announcement of the new government on Monday.

The President and Prime Minister of the transition, Bah Ndaw and Moctar Ouane, were taken under duress by soldiers to the military camp of Kati, near Bamako in an apparently power grab after the new government was announced.
