After consultations on Mali, I have some elements to the press:
The members of the Security Council took note of the signing of a ceasefire by the Malian parties on 23 May 2014 and commended the efforts of the African Union President and the Special Representative of the Secretary General for the role they played in this regard. They urged the signatories to implement the ceasefire fully and in good faith.
The members of the Security Council reiterated their full support to the Special Representative of the Secretary General and MINUSMA to contribute to the stabilization of Mali and to the launching of sincere peace talks on the basis of the Ouagadougou Preliminary Agreement.
The members of the Security Council expressed their full support to the efforts of all regional and international actors to bring long-term peace and stability in Mali.
