In response to last week’s coup in Niger, Germany announced the suspension of financial and development aid to the country. However, officials clarified that there are no immediate plans for the evacuation of German citizens or soldiers at this time.
Germany has announced the suspension of financial and development aid to Niger in response to last week’s military coup, during which President Mohamed Bazoum was detained by soldiers.
The Foreign Ministry has stated that all direct support payments to Niger’s central government will be on hold until further notice, and they are evaluating their entire bilateral engagement with the country.
The Development Ministry also confirmed the suspension and emphasized the need for those behind the coup to restore power to the democratically elected president.
The situation is being closely monitored, and Germany may consider further measures depending on developments in the coming days. The European Union has already cut its aid to Niger as well.
