France and its allies in a European force will withdraw their troops from Mali after almost a decade.

President Emmanuel Macron of France, who announced this on Thursday, said that the decision to leave followed a breakdown in diplomatic relations and growing aggression from Mali’s governing military junta.

According to President Macron, the withdrawn forces will be re-deployed elsewhere in Africa’s Sahel region.

Report says that the troops have been involved in the fight against Islamist militants in the country since 2013.
