    Background: The President of Gambia, Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara, arrived in Cairo on Monday (28th January) for a five-day state visit during which he will have talks aimed at further improving African relations with Arab countries. He was met at Cairo airport by Egyptian Vice-President Husseinle Shafei, who was later to throw a banquet for the visiting leader.

    President Jawara set out last week for his important and extensive tour of the Middle East, with the aim of putting Gambia's views on the current international situation, especially as it affects the Arab countries. Gambia broke off relations with Israel at the end of last year's October War in the Middle East.
