Paris - Guinea-Bissau's President Malam Bacai Sanha, who spent most of December abroad for health reasons, is due to undergo medical examinations in Paris, his chief of protocol, Dino Seidi, said on Tuesday.

"The president is remaining in Paris for two or three days for medical examinations. He will then attend the summit of heads of state and government of the African Union in Addis Ababa" on January 31 to February 2, Seidi said.

Sanha had to postpone a visit to Portugal "for health reasons" at the beginning of December. After a malaise, he was evacuated to Dakar, then hospitalised in Paris, before going to convalesce in Spain's Canary Islands.
