Guinea Bissau president-elect Umaro Cissoko Embalo Monday met President Adama Barrow pledging his commitment to a borderless bloc of Senegal, Guinea Bissau and The Gambia.

Mr Cissoko Embalo made the comment while speaking to journalists at State House after meeting President Barrow.

He told journalists that their discussions centred on ways to take the relations between Banjul and Bissau higher than it is already.

At bilateral levels, the Bissau Guinean President-Elect stated that cooperation between Bissau and Banjul will be further strengthened in the areas of education, health, agriculture, tourism and culture.

Bissau has a lot to do in those areas with Banjul, and they are ready to learn from Gambia’s business experiences as well as strengthened security cooperation.

He assured that better prospects lie ahead of Guinea Bissau as a country, after years of political instability. “The new generation of Bissau Guineans will not repeat mistakes that keep their population in cycles of conflict for decades,” he added.

He was however convinced and optimistic about the trilateral relations between the three countries and for the journey ahead.

President-Elect Cissoko Embalo said the visit was a personal one and he is in Banjul to thank President Barrow who he described as “big brother” both at the personal level and as President of The Gambia.
