Mauritania, Bissau hail progress in Cote d'Ivoire

Nouakchott- Mauritania (PANA) -- Mauritania and Guinea Bissau have hail "progress" made in attaining national reconciliation and lasting peace in Cote d'Ivoire, an official source said here Monday.
The two countries made the observation in a joint communiqué issued at the end of President Joao Bernardo Vieira's 15-16 April working visit to Mauritania, a copy of which was sent to PANA here Monday.
Ely Ould Mohamed Vall, the Mauritanian head of State and Chairman of the Military Council for Justice and Democracy (CMJD), and his Bissau Guinean counterpart Vieira, called for an effective implementation of the UN resolutions advocating a peaceful settlement of the Ivorian crisis.
On the current conflict in Sudan's western Darfur province, the two leaders urged the African Union to continue to play an essential role in reaching a settlement and called for the strengthening of cooperation between the continental body and the United Nations in resolving crisis on the continent.
