Paris (dpa) - French President Emmanuel Macron took a quick holiday trip to Niger in order to visit troops stationed in the West African country ahead of the Christmas holiday, French media reported Friday.

A meeting with his Nigerien counterpart, Mahamadou Issoufou, in the capital Niamey is also on the agenda, according to Elysee sources.

Macron is expected to return from the trip on Saturday.

The trip is part of efforts by France and Germany to support troops on the ground in the Sahel region - Niger, Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania and Chad - with the aim of stomping out terrorist groups.

France has some 500 soldiers stationed in Niamey under Operation Barkhane, and roughly 4,000 French soldiers across the Sahel region.
