British FM: Gambia Is On Its Way To Rejoining The Commonwealth

Published
British Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, says Gambia is on the path back into the Commonwealth following the country's new president, Adama Barrow, taking power. Speaking during a state visit to the West African country, the British Foreign Secretary promised Gambians that Britain was "here to help". A Commonwealth spokesman said that representatives from Barrow's team had spoken with them and had "warm and friendly" discussions. The Gambia withdrew from the Commonwealth in 2013 under former President Yahya Jammeh. Barrow is attempting to reverse many of Jammeh's most controversial decisions including the West African country's withdrawal from the International Criminal Court. The British Foreign Minister is set to visit Ghana on Wednesday.
