After its demand to withdraw Burkina Faso confirms the end of the military agreement with France

After its demand to withdraw Burkina Faso confirms the end of the military agreement with France Burkina Faso's government has announced the end of the 2018 military agreement with France that allows its forces to fight militants in the country, but it still wants support in the form of equipment.  A Burkina Faso government spokesman said today, Monday, that the government has decided to end the military agreement that allows French forces to fight militants in the country, due to the authorities' desire for Burkina Faso to assume responsibility for its own defense.  On Saturday, national television in the West African country reported that the government had suspended the 2018 military agreement with France, but still wanted support in the form of equipment.  Burkina Faso also gave French forces a month to withdraw from its territory, according to a message from the Ouagadougou authorities sent by a diplomatic source to Agence France-Presse on Sunday.  The letter also stated that the agreement provides for a “one-month advance notice period.”  And on Sunday, French President Emmanuel Macron announced that he was waiting for "clarifications" from Burkina Faso regarding its possible request for the withdrawal of French forces from its territory within a month.  Macron considered that the news spreading in Ouagadougou since Saturday regarding the request for the withdrawal of French forces from Burkina Faso within a month creates "great confusion," noting that he is waiting for the transitional president, Ibrahim Traore, to "express."  France, the former colonial power, has been facing protests over its presence in Burkina Faso for months.  Several demonstrations were organized, the last of which was last Friday in Ouagadougou, to demand France's withdrawal from the coastal country, which hosts a battalion of nearly 400 French special forces.
