Mali: EU suspends its military and police training after coup

Coup leaders in Mali have released ousted President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita from detention, a junta official said on Thursday.

Four Malian solders were killed and 12 wounded on Thursday in the violence-plagued central region of Mopti, after militants ambushed a military anti-poaching patrol, the army said. "Mali, across the entire spectrum, is in a drive to bring everyone together", he said.

Keita, Prime Minister Boubou Cisse and other senior officials were seized by rebel troops who staged a mutiny at a base near Bamako on August 18.

In contrast, the regional bloc is seeking for a transitional government of no more than one year.

The EU has said it will "temporarily" suspend its army and police training missions in Mali after the military coup that overthrew President Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta on August 18th.

Worldwide organizations, including the African Union and European Union had called for the release of the former President.

Following their roughly hour-long talks with the junta, the protest leaders were keen to present themselves as joint partners in forging a "new Mali".

"We are going to see if the Malian armed forces are able to maintain the momentum. we have told them that this appears essential to us", said Lecointre. "They agree and they said they are going to consult the people", said Modibo Koné, a member of the delegation of this motley coalition of political opponents, religious leaders and members of civil society.

We asked them to allow ousted President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita to return to his personal residence, where he would be given tight security, but they said he could travel overseas, and not return to answer questions they might have for him.

West African mediators and Mali's coup leaders are discussing the possibility of a transitional government, which could allow the European Union to eventually resume training in partnership with the United Nations.

Those measures include a closure of borders and a ban on trade that threaten to worsen Mali's already severe social and economic troubles.

Keita was elected in 2013 as a unifying figure in a fractured country and was returned in 2018 for a second five-year term.

But his popularity plummeted as he failed to counter a bloody jihadist campaign that has claimed thousands of lives and driven hundreds of thousands from their homes, and to reverse the country's downward economic spiral.

Despite worldwide opposition to the coup, analysts say Keita's return to power is now highly unlikely.
