France’s President, Emmanuel Macron, began a tour of Central Africa on Wednesday in a diplomatic drive to test a new “responsible relationshipwith the continent as anti-French sentiment runs high in some former colonies.
He landed in Gabon’s capital Libreville on Wednesday and will later head to Angola, Congo-Brazzaville and the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo.

Macron’s trip comes as alarm grows in Paris over Russia’s rising influence in French-speaking African countries, joining China, which has been present in the region for some years.

Burkina Faso, according to official correspondence seen by AFP on Wednesday, has told France it is renouncing a 1961 agreement that provided a legal basis for French military aid.

In a speech on France’s Africa policy on Monday, Macron called for a “mutual and responsible relationship” with the continent of more than 50 countries, including on climate issues.

He reiterated a pledge to break with former post-colonial policies.

He said;

“Our interest is first and foremost democracy,as well as economic partnerships” .
