The Coordination of Azawad Movements (CMA) will sign Thursday, in Algiers, the peace and reconciliation agreement in Mali, already signed in March by the Malian governments and groups involved in the platform, said Wednesday a diplomatic source.
This phase represents a "significant step" in the resolution of the Malian crisis, before the official signing scheduled for Friday as part of an international mediation, of which Algeria is the head the mediation team, said the source.
The Malian parties to the dialogue for the settlement of the crisis in the region of Northern Mali have already signed on 1 March 2015 in Algiers a peace and reconciliation agreement under the supervision of the international mediation, led by Algeria.
The document was signed by the government and movements involved in the Platform of Algiers, namely the Arab Movement of Azawad (MAA, dissident), the Coordination for the People of Azawad (CPA) and the Coalition of the Patriotic Resistance Movements and Fronts (CM-FPR).
The official signing of the inter-Malian peace and reconciliation agreement is scheduled for Friday in Bamako.
