Macky Sall: taking part in the 70th anniversary of the Allied invasion


One week after his return from Washington outside the USA / Africa Summit, the Senegalese Head of State, Macky Sall is at present on a private visit in France.

According to a communiqué of the Senegalese government, it is on invitation of his French counterpart, François Hollande, within the framework of the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Allied invasion in Provence during the Second World War.
