2:48 pm
appeared security. education energy. so it is extremely important that this joint force serbia will to obtain the very strong support from a certain number contributors. but today we're far from what we neede european union. full saw and france to new truly wishes to find additional financing. is going a little bit but we were talking about a hundred million the africans are asking for four hundred million. we understand one hundred million for the moment to continue scaling up this armed force. enough me more &-rs first operation which is quite remarkable.
2:49 pm
the please when the president of the republic visited bamako at the beginning of july for the g. five for health summit nation. that force was still on the blueprint phase. ii and it has been setup extremely quickly. i paid a visit at the end of july to the headquarters in that miami. the headquarters of the operational center from which is this operation has been. organized just a few days ago. and it simply wasn't finalized it was still. a construction site and it we have manage to finalize it thanks to the support of germany. we've managed to stick to a schedule which is the technical prowess and it is one that should help us today to facilitate the contribution of a set number of donors. wanted level. no inappropriately understand that we need to bring african countries to take charge of their own security. does this mean then that the operation bar can that france is heading up. in the region four thousand two hundred men does this mean that they'll be pulling out and if so do

2:52 pm
their territories i'm not coming back but you're quite right to underline the major victory over raqqa. because raqqa is set very symbolic for the french. latest from raqqa that a certain number of the terrorist attacks against franz. were actually initiated. well that's exactly why let me ask the question again. but the politically and rocka impressed a lot of people but how can we say. or can we say that we didn't isis. the fight against isis is not over and it is not of that because isis. is already beginning to redeploy ex activities and to change. into an underground terrorist organization. we know that we are far from over with the fight against terrorism and the fight against isis might change in shape. but it wants change as far as of the violin sarah activities that they do a concerned. france
