    Abdourahmane Tchiani, who met an ECOWAS delegation in Niamey, also warns that any military intervention in Niger `will not be a walk in the park' for those involved.

    ECOWAS has taken a harder stance on Niger's July 26 coup, the region's seventh in three years, than it has on previous ones in Mali, Burkina Faso and Guinea.

    Niger, a country that has strategic importance for regional and global powers because of its uranium and oil reserves as well as its role as a hub for foreign troops involved in the fight against armed groups linked to al-Qaeda and ISIL (ISIS).

    The ECOWAS delegation's arrival in Niamey followed that of the new United States ambassador to Niger, Kathleen FitzGibbon.

    A spokesman for the US State Department said the new envoy's "diplomatic focus will be to advocate for a diplomatic solution that preserves the constitutional order" and the immediate release of Bazoum, his family and all those unlawfully detained.

    The United Nations has also joined the reconciliation efforts, sending its special representative for West Africa and the Sahel, Leonardo Santos Simao, to Niamey on a mission to facilitate a swift and peaceful resolution to Niger's crisis.
