As you know, it's been a year since we had the Pau Summit. A summit which had led to an agreement supported by a roadmap. A monitoring committee regularly takes stock of the situation. And for the commitments that have been made on both sides, there has been progress, but it is a question of seeing the achievements that we have achieved in one year, "he summarized.

The much publicized Pau summit resurfaced during these discussions and it will be time for the G5 Sahel countries to revisit its conclusions at the next N’Djamena summit in Chad.

“Pau was divided into four pillars: the fight against terrorism, the reinforcement of the capacities of the armies, the return of the State and development. If we have gains in terms of the fight against terrorism, the State and the services must be able to relocate to areas where calm is returning, and it is also necessary that if the State is resettled, that development can follow. to support the populations ”, continued Minister Alpha Barry before acknowledging that N'Djaména should be even more“ decisive ”.

The time has come, according to the Burkinabè diplomat, for the harmonization of points of view on a number of subjects before President Idriss Déby’s meeting in the country.
