G5 Sahel: Heads of State discuss security and development

The G5 Sahel heads of state held a mini-summit on Monday in Paris, France, focusing on security, development and financing.

The mini-summit was held this afternoon at the Peninsula Hotel, in Paris, around the President of Faso, Roch Marc Christian Kaboré, the oldest Head of State in the area.

Security, development and financing issues were at the heart of the discussions between the Heads of State and Government.

“The meeting we had this afternoon was an opportunity for us to take stock of the situation in Chad. We were also able to note that, despite the various joint operations carried out on the ground, we have not yet succeeded in dealing a major blow to terrorism in our sub-region,” President Kaboré told the press.

For him, there is a need to revisit the modus operandi of the G5 Sahel, for greater effectiveness.

The mini-summit was attended by Presidents Mohamed Bazoum (Niger), Mohamed Ould el-Gazouani (Mauritania), Bah N’Daw (Mali) and the Prime Minister of Chad Pahimi Padacké Albert.

The mini-summit was held on the sidelines of the Paris summit on the financing of African economies which opens tomorrow Tuesday in the French capital.
