Following the public fallout between France and its former West African colony Mali, French politicians like Marine Le Pen, and Eric Zemmour have criticized Mali’s actions towards the French.
Recently, the military junta in Mali ordered the French Ambassador to Mali to leave the country, having given him just 72 hours to follow this order.
French Presidential candidate, Eric Zemmour had called it an utter humiliation and has opined that France revisits its African strategy.
“We are fighting to expel jihadists from Mali, but Mali is expelling our Ambassador. Our soldiers are dying for a country that humiliates us! France’s entire African policy needs to be rethought.”
Eric Zemmour wrote on Twitter.
Following this expulsion, the French Minister of Foreign Affairs Jean Yves Le Drian denounced it and said the decision had been taken by an “illegitimate” regime.
He said, “We cannot remain like this, it is clear that this situation cannot continue like this.”
