M. Djinnit was coming back from New York where he took part, on January 16th, in an information session of the UNSC on the situation in West Africa.

All of these matters were discussed with President Gnassingbe as Togo has been holding a seat at the Security Council since the beginning of January.

At the end of the meeting Mr. Djinnit praised Togo's elections at the UNSC and declared that " I have found a knowledgeable leader in Faure Gnassingbé, one who is determinited to devise efficient sub-regional strategies to tackle today's challenges and threats"
