Niger: France bows to pressure, to withdraw envoy, troops – moneyamebo


Niger, Africa – In a significant development surrounding the recent coup in Niger, France has made the unexpected announcement that it will withdraw its envoy and troops from the region. This decision marks a surprising shift in France’s stance, which had previously supported the ousted Nigerien government.

The coup, which took place on September 15, 2023, saw the overthrow of President Bazoum”s administration by military forces led by General Amadou Tchiani. The international community had been closely monitoring the situation in Niger, and France’s initial support for the ousted government had raised concerns about potential foreign intervention in the country’s internal affairs.

President Emmanuel Macron has said that France would soon withdraw its ambassador from Niger Republic, followed by its military contingent.


The situation in Niger remains fluid, with ongoing discussions between various domestic and international actors seeking a peaceful resolution to the crisis. The international community continues to closely monitor developments in the country, with hopes for a swift and peaceful resolution to the political turmoil that has gripped Niger since the coup.

As France takes a step back from its involvement in Niger, the world watches with keen interest to see how the situation evolves and whether diplomatic efforts can bring about stability and reconciliation in this West African nation.
