Ousted President of Mali, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita has been flown out of the country for further medical treatment.
Keïta, left Bamako on Saturday evening for treatment in the United Arab Emirates after suffering a minor stroke.
Mr Keïta is however said to be recovering well from his illness and was released to go home on Thursday evening.
In 2016 Keita had a benign tumor removed from his neck in Paris, France.
He was detained on August 18 after his seven-year rule following a military coup.
Following negotiations the former president was released from detention last month to go home.
The soldiers who toppled his government promised to release him but restrain him to his residence.
Keita was forced to resign as president following the coup and there are ongoing efforts to return the country to civilian rule.
Mali’s military junta on Saturday began talks with various factions for a transition to civilian rule.
Mr Keïta left for the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi, after representatives of the regional body, the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas), and the United Nations (UN) held talks with the coup leaders.
The coup leaders have been assured that Mr Keïta would return if he is wanted for any crimes allegedly committed during his seven-year rule.
It is the fourth coup in the West African state since it gained independence from France in 1960.
Ecowas has already suspended Mali over the coup and has demanded the immediate reinstatement of President Keita.
