MALI-Mali’s President Ibrahim, Boubacar Keita, says his government will keep fighting terrorist groups in that country until they engage in serious peace talks.

President Keita told the Arab News network Al Jazeera that he will keep fighting as these groups are still not serious about stopping their attacks.

However, the Malian President said he is willing to extend the hand of friendship in an effort to have peace and prosperity for his people.

Despite continued French troop deployments, a UN peacekeeping mission comprising eleven thousand soldiers and years of peace talks,

Mali remains beset by political unrest and ethnic strife.

However, President Keita, who came to power since 2013, has said he will be running for a second term in 2018.
