Gambia – Expulsion of the chargée d’affaires of the EU Delegation (June 5, 2015)

France condemns the expulsion of the chargée d’affaires ad interim of the EU Delegation to Gambia, Agnès Guillaud, without any official grounds and with only 72 hours’ notice.

We reiterate that the EU is Gambia’s main partner, notably with respect to development assistance and emergency aid.

France calls on the Gambian authorities to reconsider their decision as swiftly as possible.
