On Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron announced plans to wind down his country’s 5,100-strong military operation battling armed groups across West Africa’s Sahel region.

Al Jazeera’s Nicolas Haque, who has reported extensively on Mali, said many of the cabinet members were “familiar names” as they were members of the military government.

“A new face is Abdoulaye Diop, who will be the minister of foreign affairs,” Haque said. “He will have the tough task to rebuild relations with international actors, notably ECOWAS who has put Mali under sanctions and has suspended the country from the union – but most importantly, to re-establish connection with France.”

Goita has appointed a civilian prime minister, Choguel Kokalla Maiga, in keeping with international demands, and said he would stage elections in February 2022.
