Ivorian President Alassane Ouatarra and his predecessor Laurents Gbagbo are due to meeting on Tuesday 27 July, for the first time after the post-election violence of 2010 that destabilized the country.
The meeting was announced by government spokesperson Amadou Coulibaly at a press conference following the weekly council of ministers meeting.
The two men had "a telephone contact" in early July, according to the spokesperson.
He also announced that Cote d'Ivoire has received 268,800 doses of Aztrazeneca vaccine from France.
The government plans to vaccinate 7 million people by December 2021.
