US to review aid to Mali after coup

United States America,Defence/Security,Politics, Fri, 23 Mar 2012 IANS

Washington, March 23 (IANS) The US State Department said Thursday that it will review its annual aid to Mali after soldiers staged a coup in the African country.


State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said that Washington provides "significant security and economic and financial support" to Mali valued at between $137 million and $140 million annually.


Nuland's remarks came after Malian rebel soldiers stated that they had removed President Amadou Toumani Toure from power. They said that an inclusive government of national unity would be formed to organize fresh polls as soon as possible, reported Xinhua.



Condemning the "military seizure of power", Nuland said that Washington is supporting and working with the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and African Union (AU) to "reverse " the situation "so we can get back to good, solid democratic governance in Mali".



"Our hope is that ECOWAS can get in there quickly, can negotiate a resolution of this so we can get the president (Toure) back in the capital and leading the country," she added.
