BRUSSELS, Kingdom of Belgium, June 12, 2015/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- The EU Chargée d'Affaires for The Gambia is currently in Dakar for consultations with the EU's Head of Delegation to The Gambia, resident there.

This follows an unjustified request from the Gambian authorities that she departs before the formal end of her tour. Such an action is contrary to acceptable diplomatic norms and practices, and would affect negatively the relations between Gambia and the EU.

The EU is in contact with the Gambian authorities to resolve this issue.
