The head of the UN Mission in Mali (Minusma) said he "hopes" the dominant Tuareg rebellion in northern Mali sign the Algiers peace agreement before the deadline of 15 May, according to a statement published by the Minusma on Thursday.

Head of Minusma Mongi Hamdi on Wednesday met Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and expressed his "full support" for "efforts" for a peace agreement.

 "We remain hopeful and confident that the Algiers process will be successful after the signing of the Agreement on 15th May by all stakeholders in Mali," said Hamdi during the meeting.

The UN Security Council called on the dominant Tuareg rebellion to ink the initial peace agreement negotiated in Algeria to avoid sanctions.
