France wants to find way to combat terrorism in West Africa

France wants to find a way to combat terrorism in West Africa, Defense Minister Florence Parly said Thursday.



Speaking at a press conference, Parly said the security situation in the Sahel region has become difficult and is now complicated by a very unfavorable Malian political context and the deployment of Russian mercenaries from the Wagner Group.

"We are going to have to find the way to, despite these difficulties, pursue the mission that we have set for ourselves and for which the countries of West Africa are asking for our support: the fight against terrorism," she said.

She noted that the Takuba Task Force, which was established in 2020 on the initiative of France with the aim of eliminating the problem of terrorism in the Sahel, was successful, and the fact that Europeans could fight together is proof of this.
