France welcomes compromise on Mali peace agreement
Paris, 5 June 2015
I welcome the compromise reached in Algiers today between the Malian government and the northern groups on the implementation of the peace agreement.
I welcome the pledge by the coordination of the northern groups to sign this agreement on 20 June.
I pay tribute to the spirit of reconciliation and compromise shown by all the parties. I thank Algeria’s mediating team, supported by the international partners, including France./.
