Niger junta says it will not back down despite ‘inhumane’ sanctions

Niger junta says it will not back down despite ‘inhumane’ sanctions The self-declared new leader of Niger on Wednesday said the military government would not bow to pressure to reinstate ousted President Mohamed Bazoum. Abdourahamane Tiani said the junta “rejects these sanctions altogether and refuses to give into any threats, wherever they come from. We refuse any interference in the internal affairs of Niger”. The Economic Community of West African States has imposed sanctions on Niger and said it could authorise the use of force if the coup leaders do not restore Bazoum’s presidency within a week from last Sunday. The bloc also sent a delegation to Niger on Wednesday to negotiate with the military officers who seized power, hoping to find a diplomatic solution before they have to decide whether or not to intervene.
