France Defense minister Florence Parly on Monday arrived in Ouagadougou, capital of Burkina Faso, as part of a sub-regional visit to African countries.
The French minister has been welcomed by her counterpart of Burkina Faso Cherif Sy with whom Parly “will have talks”, according to diplomatic source in the capital Ouagadougou.
Parly will also meet Burkina Faso’s President Roch Marc Christian Kabore.
Her visit occurred in a context of a series of terrorist attacks these few days in Burkina Faso, where terrorism attacks have claimed the lives of over 500 people including 200 armed forces soldiers, and displaced thousands of others, since 2015. Enditem
