UN envoy consults with West African leaders on Côte dIvoire peace process

Albert Tévoédjré, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for Côte d’Ivoire, will travel to Ghana, Togo, Benin, Gabon, Niger and Mali for talks on the Accra III Agreement, according to the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI).That agreement was reached during a summit at the end of July in the Ghanaian capital and binds the Government to the 2003 Linas-Marcoussis Agreement, which itself ended fighting in the West African country and created a government of national reconciliation. The Accra III deal focuses on those parts of the 2003 pact that are still disputed.
