Niger’s junta has ordered the French ambassador to Niger to leave the country within 48 hours, according to a press release issued by Niger’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation on Friday.

The junta decided to revoke the accreditation of the French ambassador, Sylvain Itte, following several actions contrary to Niger’s national interests, said the press release.

The actions included the French ambassador’s refusal to respond to an invitation by Niger’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, said the presse release.

The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Friday night that they will not accept the request of Niger’s junta, saying “the military government does not have the authority to order France to withdraw its envoys,” AFP reported.
