Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune has made a proposal regarding an initiative to resolve the political crisis in Niger. This was stated by the country's Foreign Minister Ahmed Attaf during a press conference.
As the head of the Algerian Foreign Ministry clarified, this plan, voiced by the president, is aimed at resolving the conflict peacefully, bypassing any military intervention in the West African republic. This requires the creation of certain political mechanisms.
At the same time, Attaf continued, it is necessary to strengthen the principle of the illegitimacy of constitutional changes. Among other measures, it is also proposed to introduce a transitional period of 6 months, so that during this time a decision is made that consolidates the return of a constitutional system based on democratic principles in Niger.
It is worth noting that last week the Algerian Foreign Minister paid a visit to 3 ECOWAS member states from August 23 to 26. We are talking about Nigeria, Benin and Ghana. During the meeting, the diplomat discussed the situation surrounding the crisis in the neighboring country. By the way, to conduct discussions on this matter, the head of the Niger Cabinet met with the Algerian delegation led by the Secretary General of the Algerian Foreign Ministry Lunes Makramane. No details of the negotiations have been announced at this stage.
Recall that following the results of the negotiations during the visit of the ECOWAS delegation to Niger, held on August 19, the parties failed to reach any consensus on this issue.
The main thesis of the Algerian president is the inadmissibility of starting a war against Niger and the maximum use of diplomatic means.
