The regional bloc says it’s ready to impose targeted sanctions against those it deems responsible for blocking the implementation of a deal, to resolve a political crisis in Guinea-Bissau.

The former Portuguese colony’s parliament has not sat over a year, amid a dispute between rival factions.

This includes supporters of President Jose Mario Vaz and those of former Prime Minister Domingos Simoes Pereira.

The parties agreed to a deal, following talks in the capital of neighbouring Guinea Conakry last year, but key aspects have not been respected.
