Guinea-Bissau - International cooperation
Guinea-Bissau was admitted to the UN on 17 February 1974 and is a member of ECA and all the non-regional specialized agencies except IAEA. The nation is a member of the WTO and a signatory to the Law of the Sea. It also participates in the African Development Bank, the franc zone of the West Africa Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU/UEMOA), ECOWAS, G-77, and AU. In June 1982, Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde resumed full diplomatic relations (severed after the November 1980 coup) and reaffirmed the goal of eventual reunification.
