WASHINGTON — The Pentagon has not yet issued orders for US troops to withdraw from Niger, officials said Monday, as the Biden administration hopes to negotiate with the country’s leaders in a bid to offset Russia’s military inroads in Africa.
A spokesperson for Niger’s ruling military junta announced on Saturday that it was ending its counterterrorism ties with Washington following a tense meeting with senior US officials led by the State Department’s top diplomat for Africa, Molly Phee.
Yet the Biden administration remains in communication with Nigerian officials via the embassy in Niamey to “seek clarification” on the junta’s announcement, US officials said on Monday.
“We want to see our partnership continue if there is a pathway forward,” Pentagon deputy press secretary Sabrina Singh told reporters.
