  • Description

    The French garrison in Djibouti, in the Territory of Afars and Issas, is being provided with a steady flow of heavy equipment to correspond with France's determination to maintain a military presence in this strategic area.

    The latest arrival in the port was the ship "Ville De Bordeaux" which docked last Thursday (3 October) with a cargo of armoured cars, trucks, mobile generators and other heavy equipment.

    During a recent visit, French Defence Minister Jacques Soufflet emphasised that French forces in the area are non-aggressive in character and are only there as a deterrent.

    France is sending another two-thousand men as reinforcements to Djibouti and another munitions ship is due to arrive soon.
