Togolese President Faure visits Ouagadougou

President Faure Gnassingbe of Togo arrived Friday in Ouagadougou for a daylong friendly and working visit during which he is expected to hold talks with Burkinabe President, Blaise Compaore, mediator in the Togolese crisis.

Gnassingbe said came to exchange views with President Compaore on ways and means to implement the comprehensive political accord signed in August 2006 in Ouagadougou.He said talks were underway with the opposition Union of the Forces of Change (UFC) for its participation in the cabinet.

"We can renew members of the constitutional court as soon as the session of the parliament resumes its activities," declares Gnassingbe whose visit in the Burkinabe capital comes a few weeks after the holding of the fourth session of the follow-up committee of the accord.

Gnassingbe observed that recent meetings of the follow-up committee have been particularly fruitful and have enabled the European Union, main backer of Togo, to assess the progress made in the implementation of the accord.

Aside from political issues, he said his visit to Burkina Faso would also be an opportunity to discuss economic problems, citing the energy crisis facing Togo some neighbouring countries like Ghana and Benin.
