◢  Guinea-Bissau


One of the candidates in this past December's presidential election in Guinea-Bissau, Umaro Sissoco Embaló, wants to be sworn in today. Does France recognize him as that country's new president?

France is carefully monitoring the situation in Guinea-Bissau, in close coordination with both its African and European partners.

In this regard, France notes the latest public statement by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), which calls for the peaceful resolution of the electoral dispute.
