We were not really impressed by Mr. Mbeki’s mediation, that seemed to be based on a incomplete comprehension of the scenario and to have no impact on the situation.
Later on, there have been the letter that he sent to the Ivorian community, that touched some delicate issues and used a positive and constructive language.
And now the success (of course, under verification) of the meeting in Pretoria and yesterday’s settlement of the question of candidatures for next elections.
This last one is a good piece of diplomatic literature, paying attention to the different susceptibilities and anticipating the possible questions and objections.
We are not on the edge of the peace, but it is a good try. And the final responsibility remain on the Ivorian leaders.
