The President of Faso, Roch Marc Christian Kaboré, Minister of National Defense and Veterans Affairs chaired this Friday morning, a session of the Superior Council of National Defense.

Council members took stock of the national security situation, marked by an upsurge in terrorist attacks, and discussed the urgent measures to be taken that this necessitates.

The National Defense Council is being held three days after the terrorist attack on Wednesday between Arbinda and Gorgadji, in Soum province.
