We have not yet made any representations to the military leadership in Burkina Faso. I refer the Honourable Member to the answer of 2 March 2022 to question 127412 with regards to the situation in Burkina Faso. We are monitoring the political and security situation closely, and working with partners to encourage a swift, peaceful and constructive resolution to events. I [Minister Ford] set out the UK's continued support for the Economic Community of West African States' (ECOWAS) regional mediation efforts in a meeting with ECOWAS President, Jean-Claude Kassi Brou, on 22 February. I also discussed the situation in Burkina Faso with Ghana's Foreign Minister, Shirley Botchwey.
