The United States will resume development aid -- but not military assistance -- in Mali, the State Department announced Friday, two days after the West African country's new president was inaugurated.
Aid had been suspended last year after the ex-president was ousted in a military coup. Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, a former prime minister, was elected last month and sworn in on Wednesday.
The transition means "a democratically elected government has taken office in Mali," the State Department said in a statement.
