The Minister of Foreign Affairs and the National Community Abroad, Ramtane Lamamra, had talks today, Tuesday, with the head of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA), El-Ghassim Wane, about the status of implementation of the peace accord in Mali.
After the talks, El-Ghassim said, “We seized this opportunity to review the status of implementation of peace agreement stemming from Algiers process.” We also tackled, he went on to say, “the possibilities to support the Malian actors in making the process successful”.
El-Ghassim stressed that “Algeria plays a pivotal role in this peace process, as it monitors the international mediation and is the chair of the Follow-up Committee for the Implementation of the Accord,” highlighting the strategic priority given by the UN mission to “support the implementation of Algiers process.”
While stressing that “the implementation of the accord has made significant progress,” Mr. El-Ghassim underlined the “necessity to move forward with its implementation,” and stated that talks with Mr. Lamamra allowed “the exchange of visions on what we can do together in this regard.”
It’s worth recalling that the head of the MINUSMA mission is on a working visit to Algeria, and is expected to participate tomorrow, Wednesday, in a symposium on the role of the UN mission in establishing security in Mali and in Sahel region.
