“The expansion of the terrorist phenomenon in Africa puts China in a dilemma: to remain true to its non-interference

interventionist policy to protect its investments in Africa even at the cost of making certain corrections to the principles that have, until now, underpinned its foreign policy.” [This document is also available in French titled: La Chine face à la prolifération du phénomène terroriste en Afrique.]
