Yes, we are aware that our partners have gone to great efforts – the European and international communities – and the least that we can do is to make sure that both Mali's taxpayers and other countries' taypaxers are respected. That's the least we can do, and we're going to see that each euro goes where it should go.

That's it. Some people will come back but others will still be in other countries or displaced within Mali. But as soon as they have their voter's card they'll be able to vote wherever they are. We're in the process of organising that. We're in contact with the countries where the refugees are living so that we'll be able to organise the presidential ballot properly there.

We know it's not easy, and we know this is a genuine challenge, but we wanted to show our determination to make the transition as short as possible, because Mali is facing so many serious problems. The sooner the transition ends, the sooner it will be possible to tackle the real problems.

But I believe we can handle that as well.

You're right in saying that everyone in Mali was watching this conference unfold, and that we really had our hopes lifted that we might benefit from international solidarity, and especially European solidarity, to begin putting into practice our programme to relaunch development.

Where it's necessary, the UN troops can go over onto the offensive and track down the jihadists.

When I took the plane to come to Brussels, I had a figure of two billion euros in my head. I said to myself, if we can reach that 1.5 or 1.6, then we can consider that a real success.
