The African Union Commission Chairperson Jean Ping on Monday expressed his support to the mission that will be undertaken in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire by three eminent heads of state designated by the ECOWAS.

In a statement to the media, Jean Ping hoped that this mission will trigger a salutary dynamic capable of preserving the democratic gains in Cote d'Ivoire, in particular respect for the expressed will of the Ivoirian people and the status of the President-elect Alassane Ouattara, as well as peace in this country shattered by fratricidal strife.

Within the framework of the mandate entrusted to its chairperson by the Peace and Security Council (PSC), the African Union Commission is fully engaged in a series of contacts and diplomats consultations aimed at achieving an immediate peaceful solution to the Ivoirian crisis, according to the statement.
