Cote D'Ivoire: Call to Stay in Peace Process

Côte D’Ivoire: UN Mission Calls on All Parties to Stay in Peace Process

New York, Aug 10 2006 11:00AM

Expressing deep concern about recent statements made by some political leaders in Côte d’Ivoire which could set back the peace process, the United Nations mission in the country today called for all parties to overcome their differences through dialogue.

The mission, known as UNOCI, said the remarks come at a critical stage in the peace process, when fragile achievements in such areas as identification and disarmament, must be consolidated.

“UNOCI calls on all Ivorian parties to use dialogue to overcome their misunderstandings and differences,” the mission said in a news release, appealing to all concerned “to maintain their support for, commitment to and participation in the peace process as there is no other way of achieving a viable and lasting solution to the crisis.”
