Terrorism: France commends commission on framework

25 July 2014, 19:17

Abuja - France on Friday commended the framework developed at the just concluded conference of Lake Chad Basin Commission (LCBC) to fight terrorism in the member countries.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Embassy of France in Nigeria in Abuja.

The statement, signed by Georges Vanin, Officer in-Charge of Political Affairs and Communication in the embassy, said the framework was a right step in the fight against insurgency.

"France welcomes the commitment made on July 23 in Niamey by the heads of state of Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger and Chad to contribute to a multinational force.

"This will help to combat the terrorist threat in Nigeria, within the framework of the Lake Chad Basin Commission.

According to the statement, landmark decisions were made during that summit to boost the regional and international efforts on the fight against insurgency.

It added that it was also aimed at fighting all other terrorists and criminals operating within the Lake Chad Basin and the region in general.

"This decision is a positive step forward in the fight against terrorism, while yet another attack yesterday resulted in mass casualties in Kaduna in the northern part of the country.

"We condemn this horrific act and extend our condolences to the victims’ families,” said the statement.
