The Air Transport Wing of the Amiri Air Force on Wednesday delivered 24 military armored personnel carriers on board three C-17 military aircraft to the Republic of Burkina Faso.

The consignment and the accompanying delegation were received at Ouagadougou Airport by HE Minister of Defense of Burkina Faso Cherif Sy.

This was followed by a reception for the Qatari delegation held by HE Prime Minister of Burkina Faso Christophe Dabire.

This mission is part of the efforts of the State of Qatar, represented by Qatar Armed Forces, to contribute to supporting the peace process and laying the foundations for stability in the Republic of Burkina Faso.

Such efforts will also contribute to strengthening international efforts to combat terrorism and establish security not only in the Republic of Burkina Faso but also in the west African countries.

The airlift operations were overseen by a number of senior officers of the Qatar Armed Forces.
