Addis Ababa — Angola is participating in debates related to the crisis in Mali to reflect on the stand to take in case of a support to that member country of the African Union (AU), says the Foreign Affairs Minister, Georges Chicoty, Angop has learnt.

According to him, who was speaking after a meeting with his colleague of South Africa, Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, Angola is participating in these debates to know better on the situation in Mali so that assistance is considered.

He said that the problem in Mali is an international one in which all the countries are giving their support, including the United Nations, adding that France is already giving its assistance and talks at international levels are taking place for coming steps.

George Chicoty also said that the West African States have already mobilized a big number of troops that were sent to Mali.
