all look after security in west africa, molly pulls out of the regional g 5, so had forced flaming a lack of progress and internal disagreement. so is it time for a new strategy to confront on group? this is inside story. ah hello and welcome to the program. i'm how much of job a founding member of a multinational west african security alliance is pulling up. molly is part of the g. 5 sa had a joint force fighting armed groups linked to iceland,
alcohol in the region, but the soldiers have struggled to contain the violence. molly's military government blamed the withdrawal decision on the lack of progress and internal divisions. it also accused a country outside of the region of trying to isolate molly without providing details. molly has come under international pressure since the army seized power in a coup in 2020 will bring in our guests in a moment. first this report from nicholas huck. molly says it no longer wants to be part of a losing force. 5000 soldiers from burkina faso cha. molly martinez, news year are in the g. 5 to hell. it was formed 5 years ago to combat arm groups linked to isolate and al qaeda. but it struggled to reduce attacks because of lack of funding and disagreements among member states. molly was due to take over as chair of the force in february, but opposition for member states angered its military rulers. when you go to suppose that i just think the opposition of some g 5. so how many states tamale's
presidency is linked to maneuvers by state outside the region aiming desperately to isolate molly, while his government accuses former colonial power, france of excluding it, once friends. now foes, the 5000 french troops deployed almost 10 years ago to protect molly's government from attacks or pulling out after the military coup in 2020. the leaders of the gentle hired russian mercenaries from the wagner group for their protection. the gentiles refusing to hand over power to civilian rule for another 2 years. and as a result, neighboring countries have imposed sanctions on the landlord country sealing its borders and halting. trade prices have exploded. for example, the price of soap has doubled and food is much more expensive. basic necessities have become unaffordable. and this is because of the embargo. if this continues, we won't be able to survive. this is unsustainable. state coffers are becoming
empty with just enough to pay civil servants for a few months target has offered to mediate between molly's genta and regional leaders. while the un peacekeeping force remains, the un secretary general warns of the debilitating effect. while these troubles are having the rest of the region threatened by armed groups, while he is increasingly isolated, with russian mercenaries remaining to deal with a country on the brink, nicholas hawk for inside story. all right, let's take a look at the g. 5 sa had a joint force. it was formed in 2017 and has forces from martina, molly gera, burkina, faso, and chad to counter armed groups in the region. but it overlapped with existing mandates from the un african union and the west african regional block, a cos that overlap meant all those organizations competed for limited financial and human resources. france supported the g 5 and gave it substantial military and financial support. but molly's military leaders have asked paris to withdraw all
its troops and germany and the you have reduced their involvement. and molly, instead focusing on you in operations? ah. all right, let's bring in our guests in molly's capital, obama co, nan choro. yes, summer k. molly and politician and president of the party for civic and patriotic action in freetown in sierra leone emanuel quasi annette director of the research at coffee, an international peacekeeping training center and in some mellow and france. jacqueline senior research fellow at the global policy institute, a warm welcome to you all, and thanks so much for joining us today on inside story. young corey, let me start with you today. so the spokesman for molly's transitional government says that the opposition of some g 5 sat had member states tamale's presidency is linked to maneuvers by a state outside the region. aiming to isolate molly, could you elaborate on that statement?
is the spokesman referring to france or, or referring to another country? well, i will say for why so of course the money. ready maneuvers from the french government to isley my a d l a b is the year is the form of is listening. ringback and also i'm looking for funding. ringback for you. so when we say that there are no mil to state influence, you know, because chad is in the past and turn it in surgery and rotating presidency. molly was zooming, presidency, studying and finally that never. so we see this
as a fresh go on to you to isolate emmanuel with molly pulling out of the g 5 joint force. what does this mean for security in west africa and who ultimately is now going to look out for security in west africa? when i think there's been some confusion about washing down relating to the securities phrase by west africans. while we see locally or a kind of quote of actually presenting is just it's to, she's seeking to respond to prevent and decrease the threat that we are fixing malice. just to withdraw from that just to hell for me. it's a natural question. wishing of the kindness
in those centric modeling centric policy that it jump seeks to implement. now i think this is going to be the last step of that. the dismissal of the french from miley and european crews really never succeed. ready in bringing security to match and i think this is the bottom line that we need to be clear that those will start to bring peace and stability to them to do so. so to blame on the job. and there was another group as contribution insecurity. i think is truly a very big aggregate, but other than itself has not just come out to their daughters into the tissue.
i'm used to, she's to crib relating to governments. that's how we can release timed all to our protocols. and on benches there were specific principles involved in principles that these governments probably originally blenders and simply just kept quakes. so really has become description border representing the color to sheila, a little more to natural institution. and because of the, i'm a wall, i'm not sure chemist. agenda a bug bite is you know, some sections of their populace. ok. we added a little printer force certainly led by france through it who us to undermine that for so many. and i think that is critical about their mother and increasingly independent spouse and assets and is so rich is a we are seeing such resist,
dental to red chat. we are seeing aspects of new se, the manual i manual. i'm so sorry to interrupt you. let me get back to the point you're making in just a moment, jack, let me ask you, were you surprised by molly's decision to leave the g 5 joint force and, and from your perspective, is it time for some kind of a new strategy to confront armed groups no one that surprised at all. because a actually, the g 5 was almost a dead r, as in michael would have said about natal was brain dead really? not at molly at stop cooperating with the french. molly is at the core of, for either geographic or, and military center of these are this region where do need folk operation between 5 states is necessary in order to combat terrorism. and ah, now that marie was no longer cooperating with the french, it meant that the g 5 had not much of
a roar edible. dora de g 5 was to provide to coordinate international help to the region and also to help military ye armies of the region in the fight against terrorism. now that when malley decided to go it alone, it was, it became, it was impossible to achieve. and we can see now that for example, a comparison to maria suffer from it done is probably benefiting arrests from injunction hence than are the origin. we see that molly, the position of money is very hard to understand for somebody bought a claim that is because france was not successful against terrorism, but actually france as was fairly successful, do not manage to bring peace in the area. it was not just due to the french, it was due to a failure of governance or on the part of the local authorities,
leaving the north of the region interstate offer really very poor administration and great security and military physical and economic and security. and therefore, are at some point, maddie decided it seems to the french that many, many c straw as big as a leader. offer movement, kind of fighting deal, grow your bar, the presence of the west in the region, and especially the presence of france. and it seems to be wanting to fight it and play at east fight, in which it would be helped by russia at the wagner division, which is more there to protect the magenta, to protect money, an interest in low b, and many, many, many experts. so yeah, no, no surprise at all, you see that money is carrying on. it's in its approach to the situation
which you are accused of friendship or young ones. i'm so used to have a moment. you got cool. i've heard interruptions, but i just want to get a reaction. i see me on choro you. you were reacting quite a lot to where jack was saying so, so i want to get your take a go ahead and jump in. well, you know, preferably, you know, i just, in my mind to come to the understanding. we're not fighting, isn't it? we just clearly are. so we just one you know, listen with the best. we don't want a leash to dictate, we want to quit b k r a nation mom wanted to say in the rest of the world. ringback those who want to keep us in the complex unity
is not the time has got we have the money as a nation. we have to respect our decision to extend to other nations to fight terrorism. this is car because the g a that has been implemented for now use as se miserably. we have today with really less than 5 months of my breaking reason with asking for partnership. so her situation has significantly in this is not by a nuisance observers. so we have to come to an end for us is not a our position is we want to stand straight. we want to issue
a new one, respect, a partner that will actually work with our 70 is welcome to money in this. so having said that, i think that we should be converts my wifely in with this or other people might come from the fire. what was to begin with an absolute organization never to function because a lot of funding levels or all those issues. and then the money, but we never know what i. ready you 5 which is just. ringback so basically what we do is just sitting that we want to reclaim our mom was it was an issue residency surgery. and the competence of the hands of this
guy was, it was me here in bo and then for the president of money, it never happened. there was no release, and so he has become a defacto absolute organizations or money, right? we do from defects i emanuel. let me ask you, the g 5 south has joined force, has been fighting on groups link to iceland, al qaeda in the region. but the soldiers have struggled to contain the violence. why has it been so difficult for the g 5? so i have joined force. well, it's very basic for training, limited love, just things limited in double probability. and always this been such a big rather looking down on their members of the team and pulling their screams and controlling, direct mary on it. let me go back a little bit and provide the historical context of why my list decision to
withdraw is critical. malice behavior right now is almost reminiscent of don't talk to him as behavior in ghana in the 19 fifties and early sixties leading to this. yeah. yeah. cool. and also what sampling in math and, and i said this very clearly, leaving the g 5 a hell is, is going to be put on t an arm of the circuit ashes that a janitor is going to take to read, claim mildly sovereignty. its identity is sense or agency and some of these fairly are gone to responses coming out. i re, but to really this is meant by the defense mean is that, you know about this disrespectful behavior to one of them who is simply not acceptable. and i think, you know, should we do good where they're then from the wolf?
it would basically the agreement is that silence is great and the rest is weakness . you know, those will see, to bring goods to matter. may become enough to see how do we listen to stage and then she'll then we come back and love grades in their mind, wrapped up the kids, the interest of the people reading them around at it's not going to tell because when people go to the french region did much worse. i got from pres one pregnant in this way. and also to me, for me to start a discussion about molly. it said it said this book to international, respectful my rights. and also,
what are my young people to shock? what's the relationship like between molly and france right now, and where does that relationship go from here? the garage of a sir non existent, actually, it's a come from traditional her. and it, sir, it's a shame because there's so many millions in france. and we have so many human links between the 2 countries. as when he casual eggs, are there 2 countries we is share history even dory, as it could on your history. but a lately, actually france was more seen as a hamper army of liberation that eventually came to be seen as a now army of occupation. but i think it's part of a campaign to which she's spreading drawer of west africa at i wouldn't maybe sustain it, but considered her russian nurse i. burnett works. i had some influence in whipping
up anti french, phoenix, india. we've seen it in republic of central africa, where now or since 2016, the wagner, the russians are there and being themselves, to all dirt mineral resources, diamonds and gold. in the, in the north central africa. we see that in many that trying to the same. we can see that this moved to was unsettling. the french is, are still taking place in synagogue or synagogue, which is origin a country because it's not justice. ahead to terrorism, there is an sitting door region and going up to the gulf of guinea and to the ivory coast. and it's kind of a sitting process and some people argue it. if it can't, you know, but definitely, you know, that africa is a treasure chest. every one was in, on africa and as
a resentment because he all the countries want to be there in africa. china, russia, turkey day. i robbery writes a, everyone was to be able to have them sent mineral resources of africa, and therefore, want to take the place of the colonizer the crew. yes. and in the case of west africa, france and in party nigeria and gunner, it was britain. but frances remained as wheat and gross links, which he ignoring your dependencies, which makes it d i door can print ad in spite of its efforts to break with it's true, france has exploded africa for a long time. but since then, there's been a trying to re bonaza relationship between the countries and, and france is no longer the same as it was even 10 years ago and has been big changes or long and a, and my cold. and therefore, it's, that's why this,
why the french i worried is part of a, you know, my lee is just a small bees, even a much bigger game, which is all about, or some countries wanting to exert influence on they, when governments, whatever, or people say the ad you enjoy to go to say is very weak government, very often. a joke arises from chase. disclosure. i'm sorry to interrupt you again, but we, we are really starting to run out of time. yeah. in the anchorage, let me ask you, if it looks like you want to react somewhere, jack was saying, i'll let you do that. but also i want to ask you about the fact that molly's military government has also saying that it's security forces towards an attempted coup. led by army officers and supported by an unnamed western state. what more do you know about that? and where does the investigation into it stand? well is the, is the young frustrating than many people are come to the
understand that we are leading to the new. ready war or that we cannot continue to exploit people and countries let us in the town has come, where the people at the time too, is still there. so that once you engage in the course of certainty, there is no way back for us will be allowed to change it attitude from this part of that is to be attitude to partnership. if you were to do or is converting to after 21st century is going to be so proud to position itself to be part of it is good and this out of the behavior that you know, we did,
i didn't what you should also become. but coming to answer your question, yes, there was an attempted group. i always thought president us in our number one is not in by organizations or other nations. ok. we love the way molly is being led today. we have never been so proud in our country to be standing all to be assuming an exciting hour so it. ready would be the 1st of the class that you will just have a nice it is me issues trying to isolate mom. so we take funds by it or so day is to take down our. ready our military leaders, we're with other people. ready there will say, and one digit one minute out,
10 men will stand up in this day. this is not the model one man, this is in model our nation understanding and having you decide out wrong. the fresh control from the french formulas from there were no dot t o r t o r e r r i. well we have run out of time, so we're going to have to leave the conversation there. thanks so much. all of our guest now carol. yes, um. okay. emanuel questioning and jacqueline and thank you for watching. you can see the program again any time by visiting our website al jazeera dot com, and for further discussion go our facebook page. that's facebook dot com, forward slash ha inside story. you can also, during the conversation on twitter handle is an a j inside story from him, hamilton building the whole thing here, bye for now. ah
