Mali will keep fighting “terrorist groups” in the country until they engage in serious peace talks, the country’s President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita has said.

Despite continued French troop deployments, a UN peacekeeping mission comprising 11,000 soldiers and years of peace talks, Mali remains beset by political unrest and ethnic strife.

Keita told Al Jazeera’s Bila Hudood (Without Limits) programme that he will keep fighting as these groups are still not serious about stopping their attacks. However, he said he is willing to extend the hand of friendship in an effort to have peace and prosperity for his people.
