National Pact

   A pact signed on 12 April 1992 between Tuareg military and political groups and the Malian government to end the Tuareg Revolt of 1990-1992. The pact granted important concessions to the peoples of the north: Tuareg and Maure. The negotiations were mediated by the French and the Algerians, who also acted as guarantors of the pact's implementation. The pact was a major achievement for the transitional government of President Amadou Toumani Touré. Regrettably, this pact collapsed in mid-1994 when three Tuareg groups withdrew their men from the Malian armed forces.
