According to military sources, CDS Drammeh discussed with his counterpart Gen. Biram Diop pertinent issues designed to strengthen peace between the two countries and also to exchange training programmes.

“It is prudent to stress that in order to overcome the rampant crisis in the world particularly the sub region, it’s relevant for the two countries’ top security officers to meet, discuss and share experiences."
