The West African regional group – Ecowas – has lifted sanctions imposed on Mali following a coup that ousted President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita in August.
This comes after military authorities formed a transitional government comprising of army officials and civilians.
“Taking into account the notable progress made towards a constitutional normalisation, and the support the process, the heads of states have decided to lift the sanctions on Mali, and called on partners to support Mali,” Ecowas said in a statement.
Mali’s transitional leaders announced a new government on Monday, with some of the top posts going to military officials.
Col Bah Ndaw was named as interim president, and Moctar Ouane as prime minister.
