Mali : last Wednesday Bamako authorities have released more than 30 prisoners taken during the fighting that opposes the Malian army, supported by those of France and Chad, against the MNLA and allies.
Will this strong signals from the Malian authorities allow it to defuse the situation that is becoming more complicated every day?
This is the day after the inauguration of the new Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, the MNLA broke the thread of dialogue, accusing the government of Bamako failing to comply with the terms of the agreements signed in Burkina Faso. Anything that justified the recent attacks that took place in northern Mali after the ministers of the new government were driven north by the MNLA.
IBK has called on his compatriots to dialogue. With this release of MNLA prisoners, Malian hope a solution to the crisis that has caused too much damage to the nation will be found.
