The Secretary of State of the USA, Antony Blinken, has reiterated this Friday his “critical concern” concerning the scenario during which the ousted president of Niger finds himself, Mohamed Bazoum, and has regretted in a dialog with the previous Nigerian president Mahamadou Issoufou that the coup junta has not even determined to launch his household as a “gesture of goodwill”.

Blinken, who has regretted the “unlawful” arrest of Bazoum and the deterioration of his scenario, has transferred to Issoufou the dedication of the Joe Biden Administration to attempt to obtain a “peaceable decision” to the disaster and that Niger “can proceed being a powerful ally for safety and improvement within the area” of the Sahel, based on a press release from the State Division.

Along with Bazoum, the junta is holding his spouse and a son, however the present regime has thus far proven no indicators of giving in to requests coming from varied nations, together with members of the Financial Group of West African States (ECOWAS). ). This bloc requires a return to “constitutional order” and doesn’t rule out a army intervention in Niger.
