Le Drian arrived in the Malian capital on the first leg of a tour of several countries to prepare for a post-war Mali. Mali called on France's help in January to halt an Islamist advance on Bamako and French and African troops have since pushed the Al-Qaeda-linked militants into desert and mountain hideouts, from where they are staging guerrilla attacks.
