Guinea's ruling military junta has no intention of bowing to pressure from ECOWAS.
They said so at a press conference at the weekend in Conakry. They dismissed all decisions and sanctions of the organization on the crisis resulting from the putsch against Alpha Conde.
The question now is whether the strongmen of Conakry can effectively dismiss the sanctions and threats of the regional bloc.
Specialist in international relations and lecturer at the University of Cheikh Anta Dioup in Dakar, Professor Mamadou Aliou Diallo, lends his view on the matter.
