The Ansar Allah movement warns against military intervention and supports the will of the Nigerien people
In reference to Sana’a’s recognition of the Nigerien military council that toppled the earlier regime allied with France, the “Ansar Allah” movement in Yemen on Monday expressed support for what it described as “the will of the Nigerien people,” calling on neighboring countries to respect that national will.
Sana’a – Al-Khabar Al-Yemeni:
The movement’s office in Sana’a expressed its rejection of “any foreign military intervention against the interests of the Republic of Niger and its people, who aspire for sovereignty and independence.”
The government of Sana’a’s spokesman, Dhaif Allah Al-Shami, expressed solidarity and support for “the Nigerien people and their uprising against colonial guardianship,” highlighting the significance of doing so in order to help the Nigerien people realize their aspirations for freedom from the tutelage of external powers.
According to the statement, he called on Western countries not to interfere in Niger’s internal affairs and to respect the will of the Nigerien people in determining their destiny and their right to protect their national wealth and resources away from external dictates and pressures.
And the Niger Army Staff Command called in an internal message to put the army personnel on high alert in light of fears of Western aggression against them; this came in conjunction with the Nigerien military council giving the ambassadors of the US, France, Germany, and Nigeria 48 hours to leave the country.
