WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States supports military action by Gambia’s West African neighbors to ensure Gambian President Adama Barrow assumes power from Yahya Jammeh after its recent election, the U.S. State Department said on Thursday.

It was important to stabilize a tense situation in Gambia, spokesman John Kirby told a press briefing.
