Communiqué of the Ministry - Burkina Faso

Algeria strongly condemns the two terrorist attacks that targeted, on Sunday 29 and Monday 30 January 2023 in Burkina Faso, a military unit in Falagountou (north of the country) and civilians in the Cascades region (south of the country), leaving dozens of soldiers, volunteers and civilians dead and injured.

While expressing its sympathy and solidarity with Burkina Faso in these painful circumstances, Algeria, as coordinator of the African Union on the prevention and fight against terrorism and violent extremism in Africa, stresses the need to place the fight against this scourge at the top of international priorities in the current period and to adopt a comprehensive and multilateral approach strengthening the preventive dimension and addressing the factors that fuel terrorism and violent extremism.
