ECOWAS lifts sanctions on Niger, Burkina Faso, Mali, Guinea

The Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, has removed the economic sanctions imposed on Niger Republic, Burkina Faso, Mali and Guinea.

The decision was taken on Saturday, in Abuja, during the extraordinary summit on the political, security, and peace conditions in the ECOWAS sub-region.

The regional bloc, however, said the political and targeted sanctions remain.
