Hailemariam Desalegn, Chairman of the African Union

Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn was elected as chairman of the African Union in January. Since then, he has to deal with the war in Mali. After months of fighting, the country still needs the international community’s military support and faces a food crisis. Moreover, Mali has been in political limbo for more than a year.

Hailemariam Desalegn tells Marc Perelman about his efforts to promote the reconciliation process in Mali and help Malians address the root causes of the crisis.
