Just In: French President Moves To Withdraw Troops From Sahel Region.

Thursday, June 10, 2021

/ by Joe Shnayder




French President, Emmanuel Macron is set to announce the partial withdrawal of French troops deployed in the Sahel region. 





The French army will discuss the issue at a rare press conference this Thursday, according to AFP. Days ago, France suspended military cooperation financial aid to the Central African Republic – accusing the government of Faustin-Archange Touadéra of being "complicit" in an anti-French campaign. 



French forces have been in the Sahel and West Africa for almost a decade – with the objective of battling jihadist insurgents. But the former colonial power has been accused of using this as a cover-up to continue with its colonial legacy.  






Is Macron on the wrong side of history, considering that his predecessors have often highlighted the importance of Africa to France's survival?
