G5 Sahelian meeting postponed to early 2020

On Thursday, in a statement, the French presidency said, President Emmanuel Macron and Niger President Mahamadou Issoufou agreed on a proposal which calls for postponing a meeting of Sahelian country leaders which was scheduled to take place in France this month, to early 2020.

The decision to postpone the event, which was to address the presence of the French military in Niger as well as the fight against jihadist groups, comes in the wake of an attack on a military camp in Niger by terrorist elements.

In the attack on the military camp which was located near the border with Mali, Islamist militants killed 71 soldiers, in what is the deadliest such raid in living memory on the Nigerian military.
