Macron says French ambassador still in Niger despite ultimatum | Le Monde |

During a major foreign policy speech to ambassadors gathered in Paris, Macron confirmed that French envoy Sylvain Itté was listening in from Niger's capital Niamey despite being given a 48-hour deadline to leave the country.

Macron insisted that France would not change its position in condemning the coup and offering support to Bazoum, stressing he had been democratically elected and was being "courageous" by refusing to resign. "Our policy is clear: we do not recognise the putschists," Macron said, adding that they were "abandoning the fight against terrorism".
