Guinea-Sierra Leone ‘deal’ to end Yenga dispute
Guinea and Sierra Leone have agreed to pull back troops from their disputed border, Guinea’s foreign minister Edouard Nyankoi Lamah has said.
The two sides have pledged to resolve the dispute over control of Yenga town through dialogue, he said.
Guinean troops entered Yenga more than a decade ago, to help the Sierra Leonean army fight rebels.
They refused to hand the town back to the Sierra Leonean government after defeating the uprising.
Mr Lamah, speaking after a trip to Freetown, said the two governments had agreed to demilitarise the area.
