COTE D'IVOIRE - Gbagbo refuses to go to Addis Ababa

The five heads of state charged by the African Union to find a solution to the Ivorian crisis met March 4 in Nouakchott, Mauritania. They invited Alassane Ouattara and Laurent Gbagbo to visit on March 10 in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital, to attend a meeting of the Council for Peace and Security of the African Union.

Ouattara has responded positively but Gbagbo refused. It opens the way for the legitimate use of force provided by the Council in case of failure of this mediation.
