Diplomacy: Robert Dussey in Mali on an official visit

(Togo First) - Yesterday, Togo’s minister of foreign affairs, Robert Dussey, went to Mali for an official visit. There, he met the country’s top officials, including the new transitional president, Bah N’daw. 

During his visit, the Togolese emissary reiterated the congratulations of Togo (and of the Togolese president, Faure Gnassingbé) to the new Malian leader. He also assured Togo’s availability to support the transition’s institutions to ensure a rapid return to peace and safety in Mali.  

According to République Togolaise, Other topics discussed include bilateral, regional, and international cooperation, the liberation of Soumaïla Cissé, and security in West Africa.

Besides the President of Mali, Robert Dussey also met with the transitional vice-president, Col. Assimi Goita, and Prime Minister, Moctar Ouane. 

For Togo, the goal of this visit was to somehow normalize relationships between the two countries and with the ECOWAS following the recent political, institutional, and economic tensions. 

Indeed, the ECOWAS had imposed some sanctions (including a commercial and financial embargo) after the military coup that overthrew the former president, Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta. The sanctions were lifted earlier this month.
