  • Description

    Ivory Coast President Houphouet-Boigny said on Wednesday (22 September) that Israel's efforts to establish sincere dialogue with its neighbours closely resembled similar moves made by his country in Africa.

    Referring to his own support for the idea of dialogue with South Africa over apartheid, the president said such a policy of conciliation was the only acceptable one leading towards peace.

    Receiving the credentials of the new Ambassador, Mr Nissim Yosha, the President praised the efforts of the Israelis in building a nation, which he said was an example for international co-operation despite daily threats to its existence.

    SYNOPSIS: In the Ivory Coast, a new Israeli Ambassador presented his credentials at the Presidential Palace in Abidjan, on Wednesday. Welcoming the new ambassador, Mr Nissim Yosha, the Ivorian President returned to a theme close to his heart, the idea of a dialogue between states which have different political systems and opposite points of view.

    In his address to the President, Mr Yosha said "Your devotion to the great principles of humanism, freedom and sovereignty in progress and prosperity, your work for peaceful co-existence, harmony and understanding make you one of the leading statesmen of your time".

    Replying, the President said Israelis efforts to establish a sincere dialogue with its neighbours closely resembled the moves made by the Ivory Coast in Africa. Referring to his own support for the idea of a dialogue with South Africa on the apartheid issue, he said such a policy of conciliation was the only way leading towards peace.
