Agreement For Peace And Reconciliation In Mali


The June 2019 United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution extending MINUSMA`s mandate identifies support for the implementation of the 2015 agreement as a “top strategic priority” of MINUSMA. Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita told the UN General Assembly in September 2019 that he remained “particularly committed” to the agreement. And in March 2020, David Hale, U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, told Congress that U.S. efforts in Mali were focused on the agreement “which remains the best mechanism to achieve a peaceful and reconciled Mali.” But sticking to this script is myopic at best and dangerous at worst. The continued call for stakeholders to implement the agreement – an incomplete and unfocused strategy – could do more harm than good. .
