No: 338, 20 December 2013, Press Release Regarding the National Assembly Elections in Mali

We welcome the completion of the first round of National Assembly elections held in Mali on 24 November 2013 and the second round on 15 December 2013 in a peaceful environment and a transparent manner. The elections constituted the second important step towards the return to the constitutional order after the Presidential elections, which were successfully held last July and August.

In this important process, we believe that the conduct of the proceedings of the National Assembly through dialogue will substantially contribute to the desired environment of reconciliation.

As it has been the case so far, Turkey will continue to provide every kind of support to friendly and brotherly Mali in the establishment of lasting peace and stability.
