The United States condemns in the strongest terms the vicious terrorist attacks on a Nigerien army facility in Agadez and a uranium mining facility, operated by a French company, in Arlit on May 23. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims. We express our condolences to the Nigerien people and their government, who have stood steadfast in rejecting violent extremism. These attacks targeted two of our key partners in the Sahel - Niger and France. We commend both nations for their leadership within international efforts to combat terrorism and reaffirm our unwavering commitment to improving the security of the Sahel region and its people
