West Africa bloc, ECOWAS has suspended Guinea following a recent coup in the country.
Burkinabe Foreign Minister Alpha Barry announced the development after a virtual crisis summit.
Barry told reporters in Burkina Faso’s capital Ouagadougou, that the Economic Community of West African States ECOWAS, will also send a mediation mission to Guinea today.
The move comes after Guinean special forces led by Lieutenant Colonel Mamady Doumbouya seized power on Sunday and arrested president Alpha Conde, sparking international condemnation.
