Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders is pleased that Belgium will contribute to the prevention of terrorism in the Sahel countries Burkina Faso and Mauritania. Our country donates 250 000 euros within this context. The funding creates the possibility to give several training sessions in the fields of research- and investigative techniques, judicial cooperation and the combat against the financial flows of terrorism. The criminal law framework will be empowered and the authorities can anticipate more precisely on the threats of terrorist groups and foreign terrorist fighters in West-Africa. In addition to this financial aid, the countries will be able to rely on the expertise of the specialized magistrates of the FPS Justice, which will be working in Nouakchott and Ouagadougou.
