Ivorian crisis: Namibia says only true African solution will resolve impasse

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (PANA) - The Namibian government has said that the only credible solution to the Ivorian political crisis would be "a true African solution" for the benefit of peace and democracy.

Namibian Foreign Affairs Minister, Tony Nujoma, said this Wednesday in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in a chat with journalists, shortly on arrival for the African Union (AU) summit.

He also expressed Namibian support for Angola's position towards the peaceful resolution of the post-election crisis in Côte d'Ivoire.

Angola had condemned the use of force in resolving the crisis, saying that only the constitutional council had the right to pronounce election result as in the case of Cote d'Ivoire.

Nujoma also commended Angola's contribution towards Namibia's independence and the role played by the AU in the resolution of conflicts across the continent.
