U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary Discusses Security Priorities with Niger Prime Minister

On August 31, 2022, U.S. State Department Deputy Assistant Secretary for International Security Policy Gonzalo Suarez met with Prime Minister Mahamadou Ouhoumoudou in Niamey, Niger to discuss international security priorities. Suarez explained that the meeting covered a variety of topics, including “the inherent risk of instability in the region posed by disinformation and armed groups operating along Niger’s borders.”

The two officials exchanged information on current security challenges, discussed relevant tools that could be used, and developed a tangible list of ways the United States and Niger can partner to address these challenges. “I can attest that this meeting is tangible proof of the enduring friendship and cooperation between the United States and Niger,” A/DAS Suarez told the media after the meeting.

The mission of the Office of International Security and Non-Proliferation (ISN) is to monitor, develop and implement effective responses to threats to international security. Working closely with other offices within the Department of State, other U.S. agencies, and a wide range of international and non-governmental partners, the ISN shapes the international security environment to prevent their recurrence. .
