(AA) – Mali’s President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita on Thursday named Modibo Keita as a new prime minister.

In a statement, the Malian Presidency said that Keita will replace Moussa Mara, who resigned earlier in the day.

Keita had served as a prime minister for three months in 2002 under then-President Alpha Oumar Konare.

Last year, he headed the government delegation in negotiations with separatists from the north of the country, which took place in Algeria.
