US ‘Strongly’ Condemns Detention Of Mali Civil Leaders

The United States said Wednesday that it strongly condemns the detention of civilian leaders of Mali’s transition government. 

"We support the May 24 joint statement  of ECOWAS and the African Union, and we are working closely with the local transition monitoring committee and other international actors to seek the immediate and unconditional release of those detained and resumption of the civilian-led transition," said US State Department spokesperson Ned Price in a statement.

According to the statement, a democratic, civilian-led government presents the best opportunity to achieve security and prosperity in Mali and the wider Sahel region.  The Malian transition government’s commitment to a civilian-led transition and democratic elections in 2022 set the stage for Mali’s continued engagement with international partners to advance democracy, human rights, peace, and security efforts.  The events of May 24 put that progress at risk.

Following the August 2020 coup d’etat in Mali, the United States restricted assistance to the Government of Mali in accordance with provisions of the annual appropriations acts.  

"We are now suspending all security assistance that benefits the Malian Security and Defense Forces that we had continued previously pursuant to available authorities.  The United States will also consider targeted measures against political and military leaders who impede Mali’s civilian-led transition to democratic governance," the statement reads, adding, "We stand with the people of Mali in their aspirations to achieve democracy, peace, development, and respect for human rights."
