EU Foreign Ministers Debate Niger Coup, Ukraine War

Foreign Ministers of the European Union are currently in Toledo, Spain to discuss the continued support for Ukraine against the Russian invasion.

The ministers are expected to also discuss the fallout of the coup in Niger Republic.

The sanctions on military coup leaders and organisations that support them will be reviewed after a push from Germany and France and a proposal from the EU’s top diplomat, Josep Borrell.

As EU reviews the situation in Africa, the military in Gabon on Wednesday declared a coup.

Ahead of the 78th United Nations General Assembly and the G20 summit in India, EU foreign ministers are also to discuss Ukraine’s diplomatic campaign to end the Russian invasion with their Ukrainian counterpart, Dmytro Kuleba.

Part of the concern for Ukraine and its allies is that India did not invite Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky to the Group of 20 (G20) summit of major economies.

At the 2022 G20 summit on the Indonesian island of Bali, Ukraine was top of the agenda.

Zelensky made an appearance via video-call and presented his 10-point peace plan there for the first time.

Among other things, Zelensky called on Russia to withdraw invading troops from Ukraine, the release of all Ukrainians held by Russia, and a special tribunal to try Russian leaders for the invasion.
