Leaders of Sahel-Sahara Community military delegations, who were meeting in Egypt, thanked President Abdel Fattah El Sisi for granting 1,000 scholarships to African students at Egypt’s military academies.
On Thursday 24/3/2016, president Sisi said about 1,000 students from the Community of Sahel-Saharan States will be eligible to receive scholarships in Egypt’s military academies.
Deputy Chief of Staff of Mali Armed Forces Mustafa Touré praised Sisi for the decision, saying the training will help in qualifying African armed personnel to overcome challenges.
The decision is part of Cairo's efforts to keep the African armed forces in face of the terrorist acts, drug trafficking and arms smuggling crimes, Touré said.
