Barkhane willing to deploy force to Burkina Faso

Florence Parly, French Minister of Armies, re-stated on October 9th that Burkina Faso is welcome to have the support of the French Barkhane force which is successfully aiding operations in the Sahel.

The sentiment from Paly was reinforced by the newly appointed Barkhane commander, General Frédéric Blachon, who stated that Burkina Faso is sanctioned to the same aid that other Sahelian countries in the G5 (Mauritania, Mali, Niger, and Chad) are receiving from the Barkhane to support thwarting terrorist attacks.

For the past several months, spikes in terrorist activities and attacks have been a source of public concern and outrage amongst Burkinabè citizens.
