Szijjarto said on Facebook that Europe’s security was in close connection with security in Africa, and in the Sahel region, especially because the latter could “easily become a source of migration waves”. He added that the recent coup against President Mohamed Bazoum could undermine stability in the whole region.

The two foreign ministers agreed on the need for joint action to ensure stability in the Sahel and to fight terrorism, Szijjarto said.
