Peace and security throughout the West African region, particularly the Liberian borders with Côte d’Ivoire and Guinea, are a top priority for Liberia, said Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf in an exclusive interview with RFI.
“I come from a region of fragility, and we’ve been having problems in West Africa, and so the report of the peace and security commission of Africa is very important to us,” she said on the sidelines of the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa.
Sirleaf had seven bilateral meetings with other heads of state on the sidelines of the summit on Sunday, including with the President of Côte d’Ivoire, Alassane Ouattara.
