  • Description

    CEREMONIES TO ESTABLISH THE SENEGALESE CAPITAL, DAKAR AND BATHURST, CAPITAL OF GAMBIA, AS TWIN CITIES WERE HELD IN DAKAR LAST SUNDAY (NOVEMBER 26).

    PRESIDENT SENGHOR OF SENEGAL, ACCOMPANIED BY CABINET MINISTERS AND MEMBERS OF THE GOVERNMENT, PRESIDED AT THE "TWINNING" CEREMONY. IT WAS THE SECOND SUCH CEREMONY AS A SIMILAR ONE TOOK PLACE IN BATHURST LAST APRIL DURING AN OFFICIAL VISIT BY PRESIDENT SENGHOR.

    SYNOPSIS: HERE THE MAYOR OF BATHURST AND DAKAR'S MAYOR, M. GUEYE, SYMBOLISE THE SPECIAL FRIENDSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO CITIES.

    M. GUEYE SAID THAT MAKING DAKAR AND BATHURST TWIN CITIES WAS A PERMANENT DIALOGUE WHICH WOULD MEAN FREQUENT CONTACTS BETWEEN THEIR PEOPLES AND BEYOND IDEOLOGICAL AND CULTURAL TIES.

    THE MAYOR OF DAKAR NOTED THAT THERE HAD ALWAYS BEEN A SPECIAL CONTACT BETWEEN THE TWO CAPITALS AS THEY WERE SIMILAR IN THEIR HISTORY. THIS HAS BEEN CLIMAXED BY A TREATY OF ASSOCIATION THIS YEAR.

    MR. SAMBA SAID HE WAS DELIGHTED THAT THE PEOPLES OF DAKAR AND BATHURST WOULD GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER BETTER THROUGH THE TREATY OF ASSOCIATION.

    THE DAKAR MAYOR RECEIVES THE KEYS OF THE CITY OF BATHURST TO SIGNIFY THAT HE COULD ENTER THE GAMBIAN CAPITAL WHENEVER HE WISHES.
