The European Parliament,

 having regard to Articles 42 and 43 of the Treaty on European Union,

A. whereas, on 13 May 2019, the Council made the Sahel a ‘strategic priority’ for the EU and its Member States;


B. whereas jihadist groups are re-emerging in the region;


C. whereas France is bearing most of the human and financial costs of military engagement to ensure the safety of all Member States;
