Charles Taylor: "There will be no ceasefire"

Help

In a 1991 interview with former BBC Focus on Africa editor Robin White, then Liberian rebel leader Charles Taylor said he was willing to allow President Samuel Doe safe passage out of the country but he rejected proposals for a peacekeeping force made up of members of the Economic Community of West Africa (Ecowas).

Instead, he confirmed that he was sending a delegation to peace talks in neighbouring Sierra Leone.

He said there would be no ceasefire.
