The vice-president and the leader of a visiting delegation from Mali Abderhamane Niang, parliamentarian and President of the High Court of Justice, Mali, held a meeting and expressed their mutual concerns about the common challenge of terrorism and radicalisation, according to a statement issued by the Rajya Sabha secretariat.

Naidu thanked the Mali government for ratifying the International Solar Alliance agreement and said that he hopes that the President of the African nation would participate in the inaugural conference of a solar alliance in India in April 2018.

Both leaders also discussed the prospects of bilateral cooperation in sectors such as energy, agriculture, food processing and infrastructure.
