 BEIJING, April 12 (Xinhuanet) -- Washington is lauding the arrest of Laurent Gbagbo. The White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, emphasizes that the US has been fully involved in the international effort to see him removed from power.

Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary, said, "We are glad to see that Mr. Gbagbo has been arrested because, as you know, we have made clear that he was no longer the legitimate president of the country, that the elections that displaced him were free and fair, and we have supported the efforts of those who would bring him, convince him to remove himself from power, and we have been very involved in the effort at the international community level to help make that happen."
