Ivory Coast’s President Alassane Ouattara will on Tuesday meet his predecessor Laurent Gbagbo.

This will be their first meeting since the post-election violence in 2010 in which 3,000 people were killed and up to a million displaced, according to the UN.

The meeting will take place at the presidential palace.

Mr Gbagbo recently returned to the court after being acquitted of war crimes by the International Criminal Court.

Both leaders have been pushing for peace and reconciliation.

A spokesperson of Mr Gbagbo told a press conference the leaders spoke on phone ahead of the Tuesday talks.

Mr Gbagbo recently announced that he and another former president Henri Konan Bédié were uniting to oppose President Ouattara.
