In an interview with Tribune de Genève, Robert Dulas, a Tuareg specialist close to the MNLA , states that “a Tuareg suport to French forces” is being “negotiated behind the scenes,” adding that “it would allow the Tuareg to stand alongside  the Azawad populations to avoid exactions from Malian military as it was the case in the past. “

Citing the French Robert Dulas, a Tuareg specialist and close the MNLA, the Tribune de Genève reported that “a deal is being discussed.” In this interview with the Swiss newspaper, Robert Dulas says that “contacts were made with France” and that “things are soon finalized.” However, says Robert Dulas, the question is not simple as “There are difficulties in helping a movement that is still considered as rebel.”

Speaking of MNLA fighters, Robert Dulas portrays them as “men of the desert with principles and values ​​and that have always said they were fighting terrorism.” “They have the best fighters and they have a tremendous knowledge of the field. But they have no more ammunition and fuel. This is the reason why they did not fight when Gao and Timbuktu were taken over by the Islamists, “he says.

According to this Tuareg expert, “The integration of MNLA within the coalition forces would allow the Tuareg to stand alongside  the Azawad populations to avoid exactions from Malian military as it was the case in the past. ”
