The mandate of the Economic Community of West African States' (ECOWAS's) Mission in The Gambia (ECOMIG) has been extended for another 12 months until 22 May 2018.

ECOWAS said in a statement that the mandate extension was requested by Gambian President Adama Barrow and approved following a heads of state meeting in Liberia on 4 June.

The mandate extension will enable Gambia to proceed with a much needed reform of its military and security apparatus, a Senegalese military officer told Jane's. He said the Gambian military and police forces are currently unable to perform their duties because they were staffed according to ethnic and political reliability criteria under former President Yahya Jammeh, who was ousted by the ECOMIG intervention in January.
