Ivorian presidential challenger Alassane Ouattara (pictured) is willing to work with Laurent Gbagbo's camp in a unity government if the incumbent president gives up his claim to power, Ouattara's UN envoy told the BBC on Monday.

AFP - Ivory Coast's Alassane Ouattara is willing to work with Laurent Gbagbo's camp in a unity government if the defiant strongman gives up his claim to power, the country's UN envoy told the BBC Monday.
              
"What I am saying is Mr. Ouattara should be recognized by Mr. Gbagbo that he is the legitimate president," Ivory Coast's UN ambassador Youssoufou Bamba was cited as saying in an interview with the British broadcaster.
              
"And from there, Mr. Gbagbo is not alone. He has followers, he has competent people in his party. Those people, we are prepared to work with them. In the framework of a wide composite cabinet."
