The agreement was signed in Algeria's capital, Algiers, where representatives of the armed groups and the government are holding another round of talks as part of an Algeria-mediated peace process. Besides the Malian government, the text's signatories are the Mouvement national de libération de l'Azawad (MNLA), the Haut conseil pour l'unité de l'Azawad (HCUA), the Mouvement arabe de l'Azawad, the Mouvement arabe de l'Azawad-dissident, the Co-ordination pour le peuple de l'Azawad and the Co-ordination des mouvements et fronts patriotiques de résistance.
