US Army Complete First Phase of Withdrawal from Niger

The United States and Niger have announced the completion of the initial phase of the withdrawal of U.S. military forces and equipment from Niger.

This development was formalized during a signing ceremony at Air Base 101 in Niamey, the capital of Niger.

The event was attended by high-ranking officials, including the American ambassador to Niger, Kathleen FitzGibbon, and senior Nigerien military and civil leaders. Colonel Mamane Sani Kiaou, Chief of Staff of the Niger Army, confirmed that the agreement mandates the removal of all U.S. military assets from various locations in Niger, specifically Niamey, Agadez, Ouallam, and Diffa, by September 15.

The focus will now shift to the withdrawal of forces and equipment from Air Base 201 in Agadez City.

The collaborative effort between Nigerien and U.S. officials aims to ensure a safe and orderly departure of American troops.

The U.S. Department of Defense has reiterated its commitment to a responsible and systematic exit, with all military personnel expected to leave Niger by the mid-September deadline.
