Washington: We are concerned about the approach chosen by the military authorities in Niger

US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan announced that Washington is concerned about the approach taken by the military authorities in Niger, following its cancellation of the military cooperation agreement with the United States.

Sullivan said during a press conference on Monday: “We saw the news published on Facebook on Saturday evening by the National Council for the Salvation of the Homeland (in Niger), and we are in contact with them.”

He continued: "It is clear that this is a continuation of the discussions we had with them regarding our concern about the approach they chose."

“I will stop there because discussions with the Nigerien authorities are continuing,” Sullivan concluded.

Deputy Pentagon spokeswoman Sabrina Singh announced that a team of American officials visited Niger shortly before the country's ruling military junta announced the cancellation of the military cooperation agreement with the United States.

Singh noted that American officials expressed concern during their visit about possible cooperation between the military authorities in Niger, Russia, and Iran.

It is noteworthy that the military seized power in Niger in July 2023 and announced the dismissal of President Mohamed Bazoum.

It should be noted that there is an American military base in northern Niger and about 1,100 American soldiers on the territory of the country.
