Togolese Prime Minister on African tour

Lome- Togo (PANA) -- Togolese Prime Minister, Mensah Agbeyome Kodjo left Lome Tuesday, on a visit to Guinea Conakry, Liberia and Sierra Leone, official sources said.
He is carrying a special message from President Gnassingbe Eyadema, the current chairman of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), to leaders of the three restive countries.
The United Nations Security Council recently imposed sanctions on Liberia, accused of backing Sierra Leone's rebel Revolutionary United Front (RUF), while Guinea and Liberia are trading accusations of destabilising each other's territory.
A meeting of the OAU's Central Organ on the Mechanism for Conflict Prevention, Management and Resolution in Africa, earlier scheduled for 9 April in Lome has been postponed to allow for "better preparation," according to diplomatic sources.
The meeting is to discuss the crises in the Mano River Union Basin, grouping Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, and the conflict in the Great Lakes region of Central Africa.
