Nigeria – African Union – Fight against Boko Haram (March 5, 2015)


France welcomes the African Union Peace and Security Council’s unanimous adoption, on March 4, of the Concept of Operations of the Multinational Joint Task Force to fight Boko Haram. This represents an important step toward the establishment of a robust, organized regional force, which we have been calling for.

We applaud the efforts being made by Nigeria’s neighbors and call for continuing international mobilization.

France hopes the UN Security Council will examine this concept promptly.
