President Laurent Gbagbo of Côte d’Ivoire left Tuesday for New York where he will take part in a meeting on international security, convened by the Security Council. The meeting, to be presided over by President Thabo Mbeki of South Africa, will deal with relations between the United Nations and the regional organisations, particularly the African Union, to foster peacekeeping and international security. During his stay, which ends 19 April, Gbagbo would hold talks with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and several American officials, including the chairman of the Senate’s sub-committee on Africa, Donald Payne.
