WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is restoring a portion of U.S. assistance to Mali that it suspended last year after a military coup ousted the African country's elected president.
The State Department said Friday that the decision to provide $97.2 million in development aid was taken after the inauguration this week of a new democratically elected president.
The department says that a resumption in suspended military assistance will come only after an additional review.
The U.S. suspended both economic and military aid to Mali after the March 2012 coup d'etat. At the time U.S. officials said about half of the $140 million in annual assistance to Mali could be affected by the action.
