West African leaders met on Wednesday for a summit that will consider asking the UN to take further action on Ivory Coast, after their regional bloc previously threatened to use force in the crisis.
Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, the current chairman of West African bloc ECOWAS, spoke of requesting United Nations action but he did not provide specifics at the opening of the two-day summit.
“I believe we can pass a resolution to request the UN to take a little more serious steps on the Cote d’Ivoire situation,” Jonathan said of the 15-nation bloc.
