  • Description

    Sitting at Parliament House, Accra, on Monday, July 6, the Ghana-Ivory Coast Border Demarcation Commission opened a three-day session of talks to discuss the problems arising from the current physical demarcations between the two countries which have given rise to disputes over the years.

    The meeting was opened by the Chairman of the Commission, Mr. James Mercer - who is also the head of the Ghanaian delegation.

    Each country is represented by ten members - and the Ivorian group is headed by the Ivory Coast's Director of Political Affairs, Mr. Louis Antoine Aduke - who is also the Commission's Vice-Chairman.

    These meetings are the second and final ones of the current round of talks of the Commission - the first one having taken place in Abidjan last March.

    It was announced yesterday (Thursday) that the talks ended with an agreement to cut an eight yard (metre) path along approximately 50 miles (80 kilometres) of their common boundary which runs through thick forests. In the past both countries have claimed that poachers crossed the border to cut timber.
