Bissau -

Guinea-Bissau's junta said Friday it would not accept the presence of United Nations troops in the country, after calls for a peace force to bring down the military rulers.

“Guinea-Bissau will not accept an intervention force because the situation does not require it. If a force is sent, the country will defend its territorial integrity,” Lieutenant-Colonel Daba Na Walna told journalists. - Sapa-AFP
