Governments of Mali and Burkina Faso address security issues

Bamako, Nov 3 (Prensa Latina) The leader of the Malian military junta, Colonel Assimi Goita, said that he held here a meeting on security issues with the president of the transitional government of Burkina Faso, Captain Ibrahim Traoré.

Through social media Goita expressed that during the fruitful exchange, held in the preceding hours, ‘both parties addressed the main challenges affecting the peace and stability of our respective states’.

The two top representatives of the imposed governments in both Mali and Burkina Faso, also participated in private meetings of their respective delegations, the digital portal Africa News reported Thursday.

A spokesman of the Burkinabe executive said earlier that the meeting between the two government representatives was aimed at addressing the common confrontation against Islamic extremist groups.

In the two African states mentioned, as in Niger, radical groups affiliated to the Al-Qaeda network, considered terrorist, have been operating for several years, such as the Islamic State in the Greater Sahara and the Group of Support for Islam and Muslims.

Precisely, both Goita and Traoré obtained an imposed power after the respective high military officials of their countries showed their disagreement with the governmental actions to contain the advance of the radical groups, whose violent actions have left dozens of deaths.
