Humanitarian Financial Aid to Be Given to Mali

Following a request of the leadership of the Republic of Mali the Government of the Russian Federation has adopted a decision to provide that country with financial humanitarian aid to the extent of 100,000 US dollars for the elimination of the consequences of a disastrous locust invasion that caused serious damage to the agriculture of Mali.

The President of Mali, Amadou Toumani Toure, highly assessed this gesture of the Russian government, emphasizing that it was evidence of the high level of friendly relations between our states and of the firm desire of Russia to assist the development goals of African countries.
