On the invite of the Guinean strong man Col. Mamady Doumbouya President Bio has been treated to a red carpet welcome in Conakry yesterday.
Details of what was discussed behind closed door are sketchy but by all indication it is related to security cooperation between the two sister states.
It has been suggested that charting a roadmap to return to democracy is an idea the military junta are curious to learn from President given his track record and experience.
It should be noted that although the Republic of Guinea has been suspended by ECOWAS from all Community activities due to the military coup, ECOWAS member states are not prevented from engaging the Republic of Guinea on bilateral issues.
His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio has been accompanied to the Republic of Guinea by a four-man delegation including the Speaker of Sierra Leone’s Parliament, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Deputy Minister of Defence and the Chief of Defence Staff.
