Paris, France (PANA) – The bloody attack perpetrated in a refugee camp in Nahibly, western Côte d’Ivoire, shows that the situation in the country is not stable, the spokesperson for the French Foreign Affairs ministry, Bernard Valero, said on Monday.
Speaking in a press briefing, Mr Valero said that the return of security to the country was closely linked to the national reconciliation process that must continue.
"We’ll have the opportunity to tackle this situation with president Alassane Ouattara during his official visit to France from 24 July," he said.
According to the French presidency, president François Hollande and president Ouattara are due to hold talks on Wednesday morning at the palace of Elysée in Paris.
About 11 to 13 people were killed last Friday in Duékoué in a refugee camp near a detachment of the Republican Forces of Côte d’Ivoire (FRCI) who could do nothing to prevent the disaster.
