Ivory Coast President in Lome

Ivorian President Alassane Ouattara arrived in Lomé Monday on a two-day visit.

President Ouattara met with his Togolese counterpart Faure Gnassingbe and officials of UNHCR and was scheduled to meet with representatives of the Ivorian refugees there.

An estimated 8000 Ivorian refugees fled Cote d'Ivoire to Togo during the political violence that rocked the country, following presidential elections last year.

Almost all of the refugees are said to be living in a special camp, about 10km in the southern suburbs of Lomé.

President Ouattara’s visit falls within the framework of the tripartite agreement signed nearly three months ago by the UNHCR and the Ivorian and Togolese governments.

Among other things, the agreement seeks to facilitate the voluntary repatriation of the refugees to Cote d’Ivoire.

President Ouattara is expected to deliver to the refugees the same message he went with to Ghana that it was a difficult thing to live outside their country.
