The ongoing 27th Africa-France Partnership, Peace and Emergence Summit convened by French President Francois Hollande in Mali is aimed at strengthening cooperation between France and African countries in the areas of peace and security, economic partnership and development.

Barrow flew to Bamako on Friday accompanying ECOWAS mediation team, to briefed West African leaders at the Summit about the ongoing political impasse in The Gambia.

On Friday, the ECOWAS mediation team leader by Nigerian President Muhammadou Buhari with Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Ghana’s former President John Mahama where in the Gambia to find a lasting solution to the political impasse. The talks failed for the second time as incumbent President Yahya Jammeh who lost the December polls still insist on power saying he will not hand over power until the verdict of the court is delivered on his petition.
