Mali's Prime Minister has announced on Sunday that the country would lodge a formal complaint against the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the West African Economic and Monetary Union for imposing an economic sanction on the country.

The announcement was made by Prime Minister Choguel Maïga, during an interview.

The Prime Minister, accused France of being behind the sanctions in an effort to destabilise the African country.

After months of diplomatic tensions in the country, ECOWAS had decided to shut borders with Mali and impose a trade embargo on the country.

Also, on Friday, thousands of people gathered in the main square in the capital of the country, Bamako, to protest against the sanctions.
