Statement by the Spokesperson on the situation of the EU Chargée d’Affaires for The Gambia 12/06/2015

The EU Chargée d’Affaires for The Gambia is currently in Dakar forMs. Federica Mogherini, EU Foreign Affairs Chief
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 iscontrary 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.
