Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso Sign Sahel Security Pact

  • Three West African Sahel nations, Mali, Niger, and Burkina Faso, have signed a security pact to support each other in case of rebellion or external aggression. These countries are facing challenges in containing Islamist insurgents and are dealing with strained relations due to recent military coups. The pact, known as the Alliance of Sahel States, ensures that any attack on one country will be considered an aggression against the others, leading to collective assistance, including the use of armed force.
  • France's relationship with Mali, Niger, and Burkina Faso has soured after the coups. France has withdrawn its troops from the region and is in a tense standoff with the junta that seized power in Niger. The French government refuses to recognize the authority of the military junta.
  • These developments have strained relations between the three countries and their regional bloc, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). ECOWAS has threatened to use force to restore constitutional rule in Niger, further complicating the situation.
