US troops to leave Niger by mid-September

The US and Niger have agreed that American troops will leave the country “no later” than 15 September, they announced in a joint statement on Sunday.
They said the two countries had “reached a disengagement agreement to effect the withdrawal of U.S. forces, which has already begun”.
The US has relied on Niger as its primary base for monitoring regional jihadist activity.
The military junta which seized power last year has already ordered French troops to leave, while moving closer to Russia.
