Niger, Burkina Faso and Mali Won’t Be France’s ‘Cash Cow’ – Niger leader
The members of the Alliance of Sahel States refuse to generate revenue for France, said the head of Niger’s ruling National Council for the Defense of the Fatherland, General Abdourahamane Tiani, as quoted by the media.
He also announced the possibility of creating a single currency for the Alliance, calling it a sign of sovereignty.
“There can no longer be any question of our countries being a ‘cash cow’ for France,” Tiani said.
The general added that Niger, Burkina Faso and Mali are now involved in the process of regaining full sovereignty.
