Ghana, Accra (AP) — West African leaders attend the summit on Sunday to help regional blocks resolve the coup's political impasse Continues to make efforts. Hit countries in Mali, Burkina Faso and Guinea.

Last month, the Economic Community of West African States summit postponed imposing further sanctions and sanctions on the three countries. They have been suspended from the block after a military coup and are under international pressure to hold democratic elections.

Marian authorities recently released a transition roadmap that includes a February 2024 presidential election and a March 2023 referendum schedule.

It is not yet known if there are any participants in the Sunday Summit in Accra, the capital of Ghana. Accept the proposal.

ECOWAS sanctioned Mali by suspending most commerce with Mali in January and closing the land and air borders with other countries within the block. This measure has crippled Mali's economy.

The Guinean and Burkina Faso junta proposed a three-year transition period, but ECOWAS rejected it because it took too long to wait for the election.

The wave of military coups began in August 2020 when Colonel Asimigoita and other soldiers defeated Mali's democratically elected president. Nine months later, he conducted a second coup, dismissing the country's private interim leader and becoming president.

Rebellious soldiers dismissed the President of Guinea in September 2021, and Burkina Faso leaders were expelled in a January coup.

Political turmoil arose as many observers began to think that the seizure of troops was a thing of the past in West Africa.
