The Kremlin stated on Friday that it is unlikely that involving non-regional powers, such as the United States, in Niger will lead to any positive changes following the military coup in the West African country.
Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov, when questioned about the appeal made by ousted president Mohamed Bazoum for the United States and the international community’s intervention to restore constitutional order in Niger, responded to reporters by expressing that the probability of non-regional forces intervening and having a constructive impact on the situation is rather limited.
Peskov stated, “We are closely monitoring the situation in Niger, and the escalating tension is a cause for concern. Our primary objective remains a rapid restoration of constitutional normalcy while safeguarding human lives”.
Abdourahamane Tiani, the junta leader and former head of Niger’s presidential guard, has made it clear that he will not yield to pressure and will maintain his stance.
