Senegalese President Faye seeks return of AES countries to ECOWAS


In a promising development for regional unity, Senegalese President Diomaye Faye expressed optimism about the potential reintegration of the African Economic States (AES) countries into the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

Following a meeting with Burkina Faso’s President Ibrahim Traoré, President Faye highlighted opportunities for dialogue despite existing differences.

“We also discussed the subject of ECOWAS; I understand today that the positions are somewhat fixed, but I perceive in each of these positions a window of opening which allows us to establish a thread of dialogue,” President Faye stated at the end of his interview with President Traoré.

This statement signals a significant step towards mending ties and fostering cooperation within the region.

The discussions come at a crucial time, with both leaders showing a willingness to engage in constructive dialogue aimed at resolving differences and enhancing regional integration.

President Faye’s remarks reflect a shared commitment to exploring diplomatic avenues and building consensus among ECOWAS member states.

The window of opportunity he mentioned could pave the way for meaningful negotiations and a more unified regional bloc.

As ECOWAS and AES countries navigate their complex relationship, President Faye’s positive outlook offers hope for renewed collaboration and strengthened regional solidarity.

This potential dialogue could address key issues and ultimately contribute to the economic and political stability of West Africa.
