Mali Refuses to take Back Invaders

The African state of Mali—supposedly the first country to accept a European Union “deal” to take back its citizens who illegally invaded Europe—has formally rejected the “agreement” ten days after signing it with Dutch foreign minister Bert Koenders.

The EU has been stunned into silence at the repudiation, which is directly contradictory to the signed paper which promises EU money to Mali in return for taking back their citizens.

Koenders—a member of the far-left Labor Party (PvdA)—announced on the official Dutch government’s foreign ministry website on December 11 that he had concluded a “joint communique on behalf of the EU that will see more irregular Malian migrants in Europe returned to their country of origin.”

According to Koenders’ statement, the agreement had been signed in the Malian capital Bamako “on deepening the migration partnership between the EU and Mali.”

The Dutch foreign minister said that this was “the first time that the EU has adopted such specific agreements with an African country on the return of failed asylum seekers,” adding that this was “only possible if there’s trust and respect. But it needs to be done. Because it’s only by working together in this way that we can tackle the root causes of irregular migration.”

The statement added that the “partnership” would see the creation of a “large number of initiatives” in Mali to “help young Malians into employment.”

In addition, his statement said, the EU will also help to “increase the capacity of Mali’s security services and step up cooperation with neighboring countries in tackling people smuggling networks and improving border management.”

Koenders said of the African invaders pouring into Europe that they “have a great role to play in their country’s future,” and that therefore the EU “must prevent Malians from dying or falling victim to people smugglers on the way to North Africa or Europe.”

He spelled out the details of the “agreement” which had been reached with the Malian government as follows:

“The partnership sets out engagements for identifying irregular Malian migrants in Europe and providing them with the documents needed to return to their country of origin. In the period ahead, Malian officials will visit various EU member states to help ascertain migrants’ nationalities. This should speed up returns. The communiqué also sets out engagements for tackling people smuggling networks and the root causes of migration.”

Finally, the statement said, Koenders had traveled to Mali, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire on behalf of the EU in April “in order to reach political agreements on tackling flows of migrants from West Africa.

“This time around, the minister was invited back to Mali by foreign minister Abdoulaye Diop and represented the EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini. ‘I am grateful to the Malian authorities for their willingness to make these agreements with the EU,’ said Mr Koenders. ‘Since our meeting in April, both parties have translated the agreements into action. So we now have every reason to step up our cooperation.’”

Koenders had already presented the communiqué that he concluded in Mali to EU foreign ministers in Brussels and had reported his findings to them.

Now however, Diop has denied that he ever entered into any such agreement with Koenders.

Diop told a press conference that “at no point was there any question of signing an agreement that would allow the expulsion of countrymen (living) in Europe illegally.”

Mali, he said, “does not intend to put a price on its dignity even if the EU is a development partner.”

He expressed his “astonishment” at learning via the media he had signed such a document, and, he added, that Koenders’ visit to Bamako “had never been intended as the moment to make a deal.”

Koenders has not responded to the turn of events, and is no doubt baffled as to why Diop would deny signing an agreement only days after doing so.

Perhaps Koenders might find an answer in the fact that the average IQ in Mali is 74. On the Stanford-Binet IQ testing scale (Stanford–Binet Fifth Edition, SB5, classification), an IQ of between 70 and 79 is officially classed as “Borderline impaired or delayed.”

  1. Thats right – put them in landing craft and offload them onto a Libyan beach where they came from. Warn Libya that they must not attempt to stop it – they don't have a govt anyway, just armed gangsters.

  2. These African countries win either way, we cut aid, all hell breaks loose and they come to Europe. We give them aid, all hell breaks loose and they still come to Europe.

  3. No country that refuse to repatriate their citizens should receive a penny in aid or bribes .
    To deter future "refugees" from making the journey the current lot of invaders should be put on planes and made to jump out a reasonable distance away from the shores of the country they left. Then it`s sink or swim buddy.

  4. Mali is an absolute $h!t hole. The French have had soldiers their for over 2 years trying to sort it out and they have been wasting their time. Totally corrupt and loads of nutters with AK47's running round chewing Kat.

  5. The simple solution is not to pay Danegeld to the Malian government, but to do something that would really make an impact – a blanket refusal to accept ANY Malian visitor into Europe, a non recognition of Malian passports.
    But of course the stupid weak sentimental fools who run the EU haven't got the intelligence or imagination to do that.

  6. African countries don't want their citizens back because they know we have the dregs of their society, the criminals and unemployable, ask any Kuwaiti why they haven't taken any Syrians and they will tell you they don't want to work, yet weak Europe accepts them and gives them millions in benefits and all without putting one cent into the kitty. So any nationals working in Europe expect to pay more taxes and have less services as governments make cuts to pay for these invaders.

  7. A simple solution: 1) An immediate suspension of foreign aid 2) An immediate ban on all Mali citizens entering the EU, including government and diplomats 3) An immediate imposition of economic sanctions. And if not, why not?

  8. I will bet he doesnt want them back,probably emptied his jails of rapists and murderers in the general direction of Europe. LOW i.q. as he, well rat -like cunning of a third world leader will beat a university educated white government fool any day….

  9. Lies from both sides and Whites being totally screwed, is all you'll get when both the EU anti-White criminal politicians & their 'it's all the fault of racist Whites' counterparts from Mali get together. In 2007/8 a deal was reached for the EU to open employment offices in West African nations in order to bring into the EU 50 million West Africans and it was then that the news was made public and the Foreign Ministers of the EU member-States were in dialogue with the West African nation's to thrash out the details.

    It's a smokescreen and all Lies, Lies, Lies, because the traitor EU politicians close Door A and pretend they are clamping-down on Third World mass immigration/White genocide – but covertly they open Door B and the mass immigration continues using some other route. I'll be very surprised if these West African 'workers' are not the dregs of these African nations – the
    mentally-ill and the criminals are what will end up in our White nations. This treason is what these traitor politicians have been up to behind the backs of the British people.
