BISSAU, Guinea-Bissau (AP) -- The African Union says it could lift sanctions against Guinea-Bissau as the country's leader promises elections later this year.
The West African country long destabilized by rebellions suffered its latest coup in April 2012.
Guinea-Bissau's interim leader is now pledging to organize elections before the end of the year though no date has been officially set.
