    Background: Mauritanian President Mokhtar Ould Daddah was host to two African colleagues on Friday (10 March) when President Mouses Traors of Mali and Leopold Senghor of Senegal arrived in Nouskchott. The two African leaders were in the Mauritanian capital for talks on the management of the Senegal River Basin.

    On Saturday (11 March), it was announced that the four-nation Organisation of Senegal River States (O.S.R.S.) was disbanded at a summit meeting of the three Presidents -- and a new organisation had been created. Guinea, which has not attended O.S.R.S. meetings since last year following a long dispute with Senegal, didn't attend the summit.

    The new organisation will be known as the Organisation for the Development of the senegal River. It's purpose will be to organise and coordinate co-operation on the development of the Senegal River Valley.

    SYNOPSIS: Mali's President Moussa Traore arrived in Nouakchott on Friday to be greeted by Mauritanian President Mokhtar Ould Daddah. He was in the capital for a summit meeting about the Senegal River Basin. The talks, which included private discussions as well as a more formalised summit, related to management of the river valley. Guinea, one of the four nations in the Organisation of Senegal River States, wasn't represented and hasn't attended the Organisation's meetings since last year because of a dispute with senegal. But President Leopold Senghor of Senegal did come for the talks. He too was greeted by the Mauritanian President.

    On Saturday, after the talks finished, it was announced the Organisation of Senegal River States had been disbanded and a new organisation created. It will be known as the Organisation for the development of the Senegal River. In a final communique, signed by the three Presidents, it was announced that they renounced membership in the four-nation organisation and it had therefore ceased to exist. The new organisation will work for development of the Senegal River Valley. president Senghor said any state bordering the Senegal River -- and Guinea is the only other one -- could join the organisation if it accepted its principles.
