Mali and Burkina Faso to send a delegation to Niger Republic

The Malian army announced on Monday the dispatch to Niamey by Mali and Burkina Faso of a joint official delegation in “solidarity” with Niger, the scene of a military coup at the end of July and under the threat of a West African military intervention.

Burkina Faso and Mali’s transitional governments, which were formed after the military seized control in the two nations by force in 2020 and 2022, respectively, have also expressed support for the Nigerien soldiers who deposed President Mohamed Bazoum.

The two countries also warned that any military engagement in Niger would be deemed a declaration of war against them, and would result in Burkina Faso and Mali withdrawing from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
