Guinea-Sierra Leone take new steps to resolve border dispute
The governments of Sierra Leone and Guinea have said they are striving to settle their border dispute.
The two countries have been meeting in the Sierra Leonean capital, Freetown to strengthen their cooperation.
The discussions, which resumed on Thursday, have been focusing on settling the Yenga border dispute.
Sierra Leone claims it owns Yenga, which Guinean soldiers occupied during the country’s civil war in the 1990s and they are still there.
WADR’s Freetown Correspondent Mohamed Konneh reports that Thursday’s meeting in the Sierra Leonean capital was to follow up on decisions reached in a joint communiqué signed last October during the working visit to Guinea by President Ernest BAI Koroma.
The 4th session of the Sierra Leone-Guinea joint commission of cooperation held in Freetown this week has moved one step further in boosting ties between the two West African states.
Correspondent Mohamed Konneh has more on this story in this report.
