DHAKA: France called on Tuesday for a new government to be formed quickly in Mali after the arrest and resignation of its prime minister, which Paris said bolstered the case for foreign military intervention.
Mali Prime Minister Cheick Mobido Diarra announced his resignation on state television hours after being arrested by soldiers while trying to leave the West African nation for France.
‘These developments underline the need for the rapid deployment of an African stabilization force,’ French Foreign Ministry spokesman Philippe Lalliot told reporters, reports The Jerusalem Post.
