Mauritania and Chad have set the stage for the potential dissolution of the G5 Sahel alliance, formed in 2014 to confront the challenges of jihadism and other issues in the sub-region. This development follows the withdrawal of the alliance’s three other members, namely Mali, Burkina Faso, and Niger.

Taking note of the recent announcements of withdrawal by Burkina Faso and Niger, following the earlier departure of Mali, Mauritania, and Chad jointly acknowledge these decisions. In a statement released Wednesday morning by the Mauritanian News Agency, the two countries expressed their commitment to “implement all necessary measures by” the alliance’s founding convention, including those of dissolution.

The evolving landscape in the Sahel region underscores the complex dynamics and challenges faced by the G5 Sahel alliance. As Mauritania and Chad navigate this critical juncture, the international community will be keenly observing the implications for regional security and the ongoing efforts to counter the persistent threat of jihadism.

The potential dissolution raises questions about the future trajectory of collaborative efforts in addressing shared security concerns within the Sahel, emphasizing the need for strategic recalibration in the face of evolving geopolitical realities.
