According to official sources, five Guinean Bissau officials arrived in The Gambia yesterday Wednesday to meet President Yahya Jammeh about the crisis in Guinea Bissau, following the falling apart of the President and his former prime minister, Domingos Simon Preira, who was sacked a few days ago.

Political analysts said President Jammeh has excellent relations with President Mario Vaz, and can play an excellent role to reconcile the two parties.

Previously, President Jammeh used to mediate and reconcile authorities of Guinea Bissau whenever they had differences.

Sources added that members of the opposition party, PAIGC, who have the row with the President, are expected to come to The Gambia next week.
