The envoy said he had a very friendly, warm meeting with President Barrow. Meeting him for the first time, Mr Lalliot said it was not a surprise because the relationship between the two countries has been very good over the past three years.

“France and The Gambia have a lot in common and do a lot of things together across many sectors. We have tried to be as close a friend as we can be to this country since the beginning of the transition that brought President Barrow to office,” he added.
