French Foreign Minister Jean Yves Le Drian has expressed concern over terrorist organisations, especially those linked to ISIS, that they could form an arch extending from Chad to Nigeria and Libya up to the Middle East.
The warning came against the backdrop of an attack hundreds of terrorists carried out against the military camp Aintas in western Niger near the border with Mali, which lasted several hours and led to the killing of 71 and a number missing.
The Terrorist threat in the region is still there, and there is an arch of terror groups in the making, Le Drian said, noting that there was a danger the terror groups could spread to Chad, Nigeria and Libya.
The French Minister reinforced the idea of holding a summit meeting with the 5 leaders of Sahel countries in France in January, so that they can decide their positions to the French force ‘Barkhane’ to confront the armed men.
