France has stated that it may have to reconsider its stay in Mali. This was made known through comments from Florence Parly, the French Defense Minister and the Foreign Minister for France, Jean-Yves Le Drian.
In a recent comment, Parly said there are ‘limits to the high price’ France would pay if they will continue to stay in Mali.
Foreign Minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian also said, “the conditions of our intervention, whether military, economic or political, have become harder and harder to manage.”
“In short, we are not prepared to pay an unlimited price to remain in Mali.” She added.
Recall that on Wednesday, Mali’s military leadership warned France to keep off from its territory and interference in their internal affairs.
Apart from the standoff with France, Mali has in the past couple of days been sending warnings and deadlines to some countries whose military presence are in its territory including Denmark who was ordered to withdraw its troops from the country.
