Monday, June 23, 2008
Abdul Malik Abdullah, the outgoing Paskinatini High Commissioner to The Gambia, on Friday, bade farewell to President Alhaji Dr Yahya Jammeh, at State House, Banjul. High Commissioner Abdullah, who was based in Dakar, Senegal, ended his tour of duty after a three-year devotion to consolidating bilateral relations between Banjul and Islamabad.
Speaking to newsmen, shortly after his audience with Dr Jammeh, the Pakistani High Commissioner expressed satisfaction with the progress in relations, saying "I am leaving as a very satisfied person".
This [success], according to him, was due to the fact that cooperation between the two countries has been expanded to incorporate other fields that have a bearing on the development of the two countries.
He told journalists that these achievements are evidently manifested in the area of defense, human resource development, such as training of Gambians in the fields of diplomacy and banking.
