After a four-day visit to Chad, Mali and Mauritania, the EU’s high-level representatives hoped to provide assistance to countries in the region on the condition of improving their governance and asked European countries to participate more.
For Josep Borrell, the European Union’s senior representative for foreign and security policy, the war that has plagued the Sahel for nearly a decade will not be won only militarily.The Vice President of the European Commission Mauritania, Chad and Mali returned from a four-day visit. He was in an interview worldThis is the new EU strategy for the Sahel region, while reviewing the failure of previous policies.
I sent him a clear message, just like French President Emmanuel Macron (Emmanuel Macron), he said that we must not only ensure the stability of the country, but also develop a democratic system. The EU strongly condemns the suppression of the April 27 protests. We also reviewed the need for a civil transition. The good news is that after 24 hours, they changed their plans and appointed a civilian prime minister.
What else can we do? As President Macron pointed out, the territorial integrity and stability of Chad is the beginning of any political transformation. It is not a European democracy. But we do not live in an ideal world. Sometimes life is not about choosing between good and evil, but about choosing between good and evil. We must hold Chad. If it collapses, the entire Sahel region will be crushed.
This is a serious time, and now is not the time to negotiate such things. But it is clear that this will have to be done. Chad is an important contributor to these devices. If the country withdraws its troops, it will create another vacancy in the Sahel. Therefore, it is best to stay. But for this, we must first help the authorities maintain the stability of the country.
