Statement by the Spokesperson on the attacks in Burkina Faso

More than 60 people lost their lives in northern Burkina Faso during the recent terrorist attacks and intercommunal clashes in the municipality of Arbinda. The European Union extends its condolences to the families of the victims and to the people of Burkina Faso.

These incidents demonstrate once again the terrorists’ deliberate fuelling of instability and divisions between communities. The EU continues to support Burkina Faso in its efforts to redeploy State services in these remote areas in order to meet the needs of the entire population and keep it safe.

We stand united with Burkina Faso and the other Sahel countries, particularly through the G5 Sahel, to combat terrorism and uphold the values of peace, justice, development and diversity.
