A delegation from the Economic Community of West Africa (ECOWAS) has arrived in the capital of Niger, sources close to the regional union and ousted President Mohamed Bazum say.


Earlier, ECOWAS Commissioner for Political Affairs, Peace and Security Abdel Fatau Musah said that on August 19, ECOWAS could send a diplomatic mission to Niger. According to the commissioner, the community is ready to resolve the conflict peacefully, but “tango is danced together.”


At the end of July, the Niger military announced on national television the removal of President Mohamed Bazum from power. Most Western leaders and the Economic Community of West Africa (ECOWAS) regional organization condemned the coup. In early August, the participants in the emergency meeting of the Chiefs of General Staff of the Armed Forces of the ECOWAS countries held in Abuja adopted a plan in case of military intervention in Niger.
