Burkina Faso and Mali have issued a joint statement cautioning against military intervention in Niger, their coup-hit neighbor.
The two countries, both ruled by military-backed governments, warned that such intervention would be equivalent to declaring war in the West African region.
This warning comes in response to a threat made by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to take military action against Niger’s junta if President Mohamed Bazoum is not reinstated within seven days.
Burkina Faso and Mali expressed their solidarity with the people of Niger and urged West African leaders to refrain from any actions that could have disastrous consequences.
The coup in Niger, which took place on July 26, has raised concerns throughout the region, including in neighboring Nigeria.
The coup leaders have named General Abdourahamane Tchiani as the Head of State, citing poor governance and discontent with President Bazoum’s handling of security threats as reasons for the overthrow.
