Gambian Parties Commit To Peace, Harmony - Pres. Sirleaf

MONROVIA, December 15 (LINA) - The ECOWAS Chairperson of the Authority of Heads of State has disclosed that concerned parties in The Gambia political stalemate have committed to peace and harmony.

According to an Executive Mansion release issued here Wednesday, the Liberian leader made the disclosure Tuesday evening at the Robert International Airport (RIA) when she addressed journalists upon her arrival from The Gambia where she led a high-level ECOWAS delegation to mediate in the ongoing political crisis resulting from the just-ended elections.

The delegation comprised Presidents Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria, Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone, John Dramani Mahama of Ghana, the Special Representative of U.N. Secretary-General for West Africa and the Sahel, Dr. Mohammed Ibn Chambas, among others.

President Sirleaf said the delegation traveled to The Gambia to hold talks with the parties concerned aimed at ensuring peace, security and harmony in the West African nation. 

She told journalists that following the mediation process, the parties committed themselves to peace, pending the ECOWAS Summit slated for later this week in Abuja, Nigeria.
