Niger's Military junta has accused France of "blatant interference" for supporting the country's ousted president, Mohamed Bazoum. President Bazoum was detained by his guard on July 26, and the West African bloc ECOWAS has threatened military intervention if he is not returned to office. French President Emmanuel Macron has called for a responsible policy in the region and expressed support for ECOWAS' diplomatic and military actions. The military regime in Niger has denounced military agreements with France and organized protests against the French military presence. Efforts to peacefully resolve the crisis are ongoing, with proposals for transitional plans.
