Djibouti: Interview with President Guelleh (in French)

Jeune Afrique published on 4 April 2017 a long and fascinating interview titled "Ismail Omar Guelleh: Personne d'autre que les Chinois n'offre an partenariat a long terme a Djibouti" that covers relations with key countries and internal developments.

France, the US, Japan and now China all have military bases in Djibouti. President Guelleh discusses the challenges these bases pose for Djiboutian relations with these and other countries. The president is especially positive about Djiboutian relations with China, commenting that "the reality is that no one but the Chinese offers a long-term partnership in Djibouti."
