Mr Cardoso told reporters that the visit was meant to further consolidate relations between Banju and Bissau. He described the recent visit of President Vieira as a positive move, considering the fact that Bissau has just emerged from a difficult past and needed the collaboration of The Gambia to build a brighter future.
