Mr Barrow made the comments following a meeting with the European Union Commissioner for International Co-operation and Development, Neven Mimica, in the capital, Banjul.
Mr Mimica welcomed the announcement in a tweet:

Mr Barrow won the 1 December election on a promise to champion human rights and freedom, ending the repression that Gambians experienced during Mr Jammeh's 22-year rule.
