Niger accepts Algeria’s offer to help resolve crisis

Algeria’s foreign ministry, on Monday, said Niger Republic has accepted an Algerian offer to mediate in its political crisis.

The acceptance came five weeks after the North African country proposed a six-month transition process led by a civilian.

On 26 July 2023, a coup d’état occurred in Niger when the country’s presidential guard detained President Mohamed Bazoum, and Presidential Guard commander General, Abdourahamane Tchiani proclaimed himself the leader of a new military junta, shortly after confirming the coup a success.

The Economic Community of West African States has said it is ready to deploy troops if diplomatic efforts to restore order are unsuccessful.

In late August, Algerian Foreign Minister Ahmed Attaf said Algeria had spoken several times to Niger’s military leaders and proposed an initiative to return the country to normal constitutional order.


It said it would propose guarantees for all sides in the crisis and host a conference on development in the Sahel region, without elaborating.

Fortunately, Algeria received Niger’s official notification of its acceptance of President Abdelmadjid Tebboune’s mediation initiative, the ministry said in a statement read out on national television, according to Reuters.

But there was no immediate comment from Niger’s junta.
