ECOWAS begins a new ordinary summit to assess the coup crises in Mali, Burkina Faso and Guinea

July 3 (EUROPA PRESS) –

The heads of state and government of West Africa began this Sunday in Accra, the capital of Ghana, a summit to assess the evolution of the coup crises in Mali, Burkina Faso and Guinea after the lack of consensus exhibited in their previous meeting in last month.

Countries such as Niger, Gambia or Ghana were committed to tightening sanctions against Mali to express their disagreement with, in their opinion, the excessive duration of the transition period proposed by the coup plotters, 24 months compared to the 16 required by ECOWAS.

Nigeria, on the other hand, has declared itself against new restrictions given the economic and food crisis exacerbated by the war in Ukraine, notes Radio France Internationale (RFI).

One of the few decisions reached at the previous summit was the appointment of former Nigerien President Mahamadou Issoufou as mediator for the crisis in Burkina Faso, where ECOWAS also believes that the three-year transition period proposed by the coup plotters is excessive, like the 36 months raised by the military junta that governs Guinea.

As regards Burkina, ECOWAS remains concerned about the deterioration of security in the territory and continues to reject the three years required by the new authorities before the organization of the elections, but the dialogue is considered satisfactory and could elicit more leniency from the African organization.
