Senegal declared on Thursday that it will take part in any military intervention in Niger by the Economic Community of West African States in response to last week’s coup.
According to AFP, this was disclosed by the Senegalese Foreign Minister Aissata Tall Sall while speaking to journalists.
Sall stated that there had been one “coup too many” in the region and while also citing Senegal’s international commitments.
“Senegalese soldiers, for all these reasons, will go there,” she said.
The Economic Community of West African States has issued a warning over the possible deployment of military intervention if the junta fails to reinstate the deposed President Mohamed Bazoum by the upcoming Sunday.
