Johannesburg - Newly-elected commission chair of the African Union (AU) Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma arrived in Mali on Wednesday, her office said.

"Dlamini-Zuma has arrived in Mali ahead of the scheduled African Union and the Economic Community of West African States [Ecowas] meeting scheduled for Friday," said her spokesperson, Ronnie Mamoepa.

The meeting would discuss and assist in finding a resolution to the current political challenges, including the restoration of democracy and the challenges of secession, he said.

The meeting was scheduled to run until Saturday.

Dlamini-Zuma was elected as the new chairperson in July and officially took over the role on Monday.

Speaking at the hand-over ceremony on Monday, Dlamini-Zuma said the AU would try to resolve the conflict in Mali and the Sahel region, or else the crisis would spread to other regions.
