General Milley says U.S. looking to reduce troops deployment in Africa | i24 News

Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley has expressed his ideas for shifting the military presence in Africa to focus more resources on the Middle East or the Continental United States. Carrying out operations with national forces against jihadists, Washington currently has some 7,000 special forces on rotation in Africa. This announcement comes shortly after President Trump called for NATO to do more in the Middle East, and French President Emmanuel Macron discusses increased support for the fight against jihadists in the Sahel region. Macron has asked the Sahel leaders to reaffirm their support against the terrorist organizations following the death of 13 French soldiers due to a helicopter collision. The U.S. has aimed to reduce their military presence throughout Africa over the next few years in order to make Russia and China a primary focus.
