( 30, 2015)-The Presidents of Liberia and La Cote D’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) say they want to hold another border community meeting in July 2016.

Presidents Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and Alassan Ouattara want to hold the border community meeting with the Joint Council of Chiefs and Elders in Guiglo, a border town in La Cote D’Ivoire.

An Executive Mansion release says the expressed desire for holding such a meeting was one of the many decisions contained in a communiqué signed between the two countries.

According to the communiqué, both countries agreed to strengthen security by increasing cooperation among the peoples in the border region.

They also agreed to establish reliable mechanisms capable of guaranteeing more effective security in the region.

The communiqué was signed by the two West African nations, following President Johnson-Sirleaf’s recent two-day working visit to La Cote D’Ivoire at the invitation of President Ouattara.

Justice Minister, Benedict Sannoh, signed for Liberia and Minister of State and Foreign Affairs, Charles Koffi Diby, signed for La Cote D’Ivoire.

The border community meeting is in continuation of the dialogue and consultations launched two years ago by both countries in the Liberian city of Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County.-
