Is France withdrawing army from Mali?

France warns of withdrawal of troops from Mali. Recently the second military coup has taken place in the West African country. The French government has said it will withdraw troops from Mali if it does not return to democracy. Emmanuel Macron also said that the  army will also withdraw if the country turns to Islamic terrorism .

 For almost a decade, the French government has been assisting in the suppression of Islamic terrorism  in various African countries. These includes Mali, Mauritania, Saad, Nigeria. At one time, French military personnel were working in support of the government in all these colonized countries. The army was working to counter Islamic terrorism . But French President Emmanuel Macron told a news conference yesterday that France would not support any Islamic terrorism  or undemocratic activities. He added that the recent uprising in Mali could further increase Islamic terrorism.

The way the military coup took place in Mali

This is the second military coup which is taken in Mali in last nine months. Asimi Goita has been elected president of the country. The colonel has led a military coup for the second time. In August last year, he led an army coup against the country’s then head of state. But last Friday, under the interim government, he staged another military coup, capturing the interim president and prime minister. When the interim government resigned, Asita Goita was appointed president. The country’s constitutional court ruled in her favor. Many believe that democracy in the African country of Mali has gone one step further.

The French president has warned that Islamic terrorism  could re-emerge in the wake of the ongoing political unrest in Mali. He said French troops would be withdrawn if there were any incidents of Islamic terrorism  in Mali, adding that France would not support any undemocratic activities.
