Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune said that a possible intervention in Niger would be a direct threat to his country.
Algeria opposes possible military intervention in the Republic of Niger, where the head of State Mohamed Bazoum was removed from power as a result of the July 26 mutiny. This was stated on Saturday evening by Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune in an interview with national television.
“Waving military intervention in Niger is a direct threat to Algeria, and we completely and categorically reject it,” the head of state stressed. “Problems should be solved peacefully,” he continued, speaking about the events taking place in Niger.
“There has been a coup [in Niger]. And we have confirmed that we stand for constitutional legality. And it is necessary to return to this legality. We are ready to help them,” Tebboune added.
