A report by “Africa Intelligence” revealed that Iran is trying to make a grand bargain with Niger by buying 300 tons of uranium.

According to the report, “Iran and Niger are in advanced negotiations to secure this amount of crude uranium from the Sahel country.”

This came days after the government spokesman in Niamey, Abderrahmane Amadou, denied Western reports that his country had contracted with Iran to supply it with uranium ore, calling it a “liar” and accusing the United States of arrogance in dealing with others.

For its part, the United States has not formally accused Niger of contracting with Iran, but this development shows the growing interest in the region and the diplomatic and economic moves that followed France’s withdrawal.
