  • Description

    A high level delegation from Nigeria arrived in Abidjan on Saturday (October 17) for talks which could lead to a resumption of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The delegation was led by the Nigerian Minister of Works, Mr. Femi Okunnu.

    Diplomatic relations between the two countries ceased in 1968 when the Ivory Coast Government recognised the former secessionist Biafran regime.

    Signs of friendlier attitudes have beeb noticed since the last Organisation of African Unity summit conference in Addis Ababa. A high-level delegation from the Ivory Coast also attended Nigeria's tenth independence anniversary celebrations in Lagos earlier this month.
