Cote d'Ivoire's Prime Minister Jeannot Ahoussou Kouadio would meet with members of the opposition party to define practical modalities for dialogue after the post-election violence, an official source has said.
According to the source, Kouadio would meet with ex- president Laurent Gbagbo's party on July 13.
"We have agreed with the prime minister that we shall meet on July 13 to define the practical modalities for holding discussions between the government and the Cote d'Ivoire Popular Front (FPI)," FPI's interim president Miaka Ouretto said after a meeting with the premier in Abidjan.
Political dialogue between the government and FPI in September last year collapsed due to the conditions that were made by the former ruling party.
The condition called for the release from prison of all the officials of the former regime including Gbagbo and his wife, the return of all those in political exile, and unfreezing of their assets.
The government revived dialogue during a meeting held between April 27 and 28 at the Southern town of Grand Bassam, 35 km from Abidjan.
However, after the two days meeting, FPI did not sign the conclusions of the meeting which created the Permanent Dialogue Platform (CPD) between the government and ten small parties that were allied to Gbagbo.
The former ruling party which was present during the opening of those talks, said that it was there as an observer.
"We were holding our national convention at the same time, but we decided to send a delegation to the Grand-Bassam forum to demonstrate that between us, the Cote d'Ivoire citizens, we can sit and we should sit and discuss amongst ourselves," Ouretto said.
At the end of that convention, Gbagbo's party expressed the desire to see the prime minister so that it could give him "its concerns,".
