4. SOUNDBITE (French) Mahamat Saleh Annadif, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General:
“The fact that the 38th session of the Agreement Monitoring Committee (CSA in Fr.) was not held as planned in Kidal on 17 September has created ill feelings among the signatory parties. This feeling was amplified by the Government’s announcement that it is determent to revise certain provisions of the Agreement, all in the framework of the National Inclusive Dialogue. In the light of these developments, which are potentially harmful to the smooth implementation of the peace process, it is extremely important to call on all stakeholders to continue their dialogue in the spirit of the Agreement, which remains the sole platform for the return of peace and stability in Mali. The strengthening of trust between the signatories is essential for the holding of the next session of CSA.”

6. SOUNDBITE (French) Mahamat Saleh Annadif, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Mali:
“The humanitarian situation in the center of the country continues to deteriorate. The cycle of violence has caused new waves of internal displacement of nearly 171 000 persons – a highest number of displaced since 2015.”

8. SOUNDBITE (French) Issa Konfourou, Permanent Representative of Mali to the United Nations:
“We shouldn’t lose the sight of the fact that the implementation of the Agreement is faced with considerable challenges, such as the degradation of security environment and the lack of financial resources, including the funds pledged by our partners, which leads me once again to appeal to our partners to honor their commitments in order to allow us to follow through with the implementation of the Agreement. Moving forward, the Government remains determent to speed up the implementation of the Agreement, as we proved last July by the adoption of the revised roadmap, by the Government and the signatory parties.”

STORYLINE
The Agreement for Peace and Reconciliation from 2014 “remains the sole platform for the return of peace and stability in Mali,” the top UN official in the country Mahamat Saleh Annadif told the Security Council on Tuesday (8 Oct) in New York.

“The fact that the 38th session of the Agreement Monitoring Committee (CSA in Fr.) was not held as planned in Kidal on 17 September has created ill feelings among the signatory parties,” said Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Mali Mahamat Saleh Annadif. “This feeling was amplified by the Government’s announcement that it is determent to revise certain provisions of the Agreement, all in the framework of the National Inclusive Dialogue,” he added.

Annadif was speaking via videolink at the UN Security Council’s meeting on the situation in Mali following the publishing of report of the UN Secretary-General on the situation in the country, which highlighted “the slow pace” in implementation of the Peace Agreement.

The Special Representative underlined: “in the light of these developments, which are potentially harmful to the smooth implementation of the peace process, it is extremely important to call on all stakeholders to continue their dialogue in the spirit of the Agreement, which remains the sole platform for the return of peace and stability in Mali.”

On the humanitarian side, Annadif said “the humanitarian situation in the center of the country continues to deteriorate. The cycle of violence has caused new waves of internal displacement of nearly 171 000 persons – a highest number of displaced since 2015.”

Also speaking at the meeting, Malian ambassador at the UN Issa Konfourou, said his government “remains determent to speed up the implementation of the Agreement,” despite multiple challenges.

He said “we shouldn’t lose the sight of the fact that the implementation of the Agreement is faced with considerable challenges, such as the degradation of security environment and the lack of financial resources, including the funds pledged by our partners, which leads me once again to appeal to our partners to honor their commitments in order to allow us to follow through with the implementation of the Agreement.”

The meeting of the Security Council took place just two days after one UN peacekeeper from Chad was killed and four other injured ( three from Chad and one from Togo) in two separated attacks that took place on Sunday (6 Oct).
