G-5 Sahel

The G-5 Sahel Task Force is comprised of five (5) African countries: Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, and Niger. On Oct. 30, 2017, the U.S. pledged up to $60M in bilateral assistance to support this joint forces' counterterrorism efforts. While this initiative is still relatively new, and exact details of how the U.S. will support is still to be determined, any direct support we provide will be in conjunction and in coordination with those respective host nations and other UN and international partners, mainly the French, who have had a long-standing military presence in the region with Operation Barkhane
