MONROVIA, November 8 (LINA) - In a bid to resolve the political crisis in Guinea Bissau, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has urged all parties involved in the crisis to respect the Conakry Agreement which was signed recently by stakeholders.

The call by the ECOWAS political leaders follows the signing of a final communiqué that comprises six counts, which aims at finding an amicable solution to the nation's political crisis.

A Foreign Ministry release issued here said the Conakry Agreement, which was signed by the parties on October 14, takes into consideration solutions and recommendations aimed at resolving the political stalemate in that country.
