Mauritania's president: G5 Sahel anti-terror force plagued by security flaws


Ahead of the African Union summit in Nouakchott this Sunday, FRANCE 24 sat down with Mauritania’s President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz to discuss a number of issues, including his vision of the joint African anti-terror task force, G5 Sahel. While Aziz condemned Friday’s attack on the G5 Sahel’s base in Mali, he noted that the task force is plagued by serious security flaws. Aziz finds it incomprehensible that neither the UN nor the international community feel urged to help finance the force.
