After the West African bloc ECOWAS  imposed tough sanctions on the troubled Sahel country over delayed elections, Mali’s strongman leader Assimi Goita indicated Monday that Bamako remained open to discussion. After sanctions Mali’s junta leader is ‘ready to discussion’.

Leaders of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) agreed on Sunday to close borders with the Sahel state and impose a trade embargo, escalating months of simmering diplomatic tensions.

At the United Nations Security Council on Monday, France, Mali’s former colonial power, approved this move.


“Even if we regret the illegitimate, illegal and inhumane nature of certain decisions, Mali remains open to dialogue with the Economic Community of West African States to find a consensus,” Goita said on state TV.

Malians have expressed anxiety over the possibility of future shortages as a result of the trade restriction on social media.


The Mali National Union of Workers (UNTM) published a statement Monday decrying ECOWAS sanctions “imposed on the Mali people.”

Mali, a landlocked country with a population of 19 million people, is one of the poorest nations on earth.
