Bush calls for power-sharing agreement in Kenya

Latest update : 2008-02-18

President Bush arrived in Tanzania as part of a five-nation African tour. Earlier, he expressed his wish that the Kenyan government and opposition reach an agreement to end the crisis in the country.

COTONOU, Feb 16 (Reuters) - President George W. Bush said on
Saturday the United States wanted to see a power sharing
agreement in Kenya to end the post-election conflict that has
killed 1,000 people in the East African state.
 

Bush, who began a five-nation visit to Africa on Saturday,
is sending Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to Kenya to back
mediation efforts between the government and opposition
coordinated by former United Nations chief Kofi Annan.
 

"In terms of Condi's visit, the key is that the leaders hear
from her first hand that the United States desires to see that
there be no violence and that there be a power sharing agreement
that will help this nation resolve its difficulties. That's what
diplomacy is," Bush told reporters after arriving in the West
African state of Benin.

U.S. President George W. Bush arrived in Tanzania on Saturday after pushing for a power-sharing deal to solve the bloody political crisis in neighbouring Kenya.
 

Bush arrived from Benin to begin the second and longest leg
of a five-nation African tour that will also take him to Rwanda,
Ghana and Liberia. He will not visit Kenya, which is torn by the
worst crisis in its history following a disputed election, but
is sending Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice there on Monday.
