Algeria defends peaceful solution to Niger crisis

Algiers, Aug 29 (Prensa Latina) Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune seeks a peaceful solution to the political crisis in Niger following recent military coup, an official source stated on Tuesday.

Ahmed Attaf, Minister of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad, also stated that Abdelmadjid Tebboune respects the principle of rejecting unconstitutional changes and opposes any military intervention in the country.

According to APS, the foreign minister warned at the Abdelatif Rahal International Conference Center in Algiers that resorting to force to solve the Nigerien crisis would have disastrous consequences in that State and the region.

As Algeria, other African countries such as Guinea, Burkina Faso, and Mali where attempted coups occurred recently, have called for a peaceful solution to the conflict in Niamey.

Such a violent action resulted in the removal from power of President Mohamed Bazoum, who is currently held by the imposed military junta led by General Abdourahamane Tchiani.

Faced with the refusal of the new authorities to reinstate Bazoum, the 15 members of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) threatened to intervene in Niger directly by military means and restore the constitutional order.
