A delegation of the Supreme Council for the Restoration of Democracy (CSRD), the military junta in Niger, left for Benin and Senegal on Tuesday.

The delegation of seven members headed by Col. Mossi Hassan is scheduled to arrived in Benin later in the day, the first leg of the mission, to explain the Feb. 18 military coup in Niger.

Col. Mossi was accompanied by three members of the CSRD including Djibrilla Hima, Mamane Souley and Moctar Amadou. The other members of his entourage are Karim Hima, Doro Oumar and the secretary general of the Foreign Ministry, Abdoulaye Adam Dan Maradi.

Last week, the junta sent a delegation to Nigeria, Togo, Ghana and Burkina Faso to explain why the military took over power and the measures they intend to take during the transition period.

On Monday, a junta delegation was in Paris on a similar mission.
