‘EU Focus Is On Getting Liberia Back On Its Feet’ - Envoy

MONROVIA, January 20 (LINA) - The new European Union (EU) Ambassador to Liberia, Ms. Tiina Intelmann, says the EU’s attention is now focused on plans for the post-Ebola period to help the country get back on its feet.

The EU diplomat also expressed interest in continuing the political dialogue started long before the health crisis.

According to an Executive Mansion release, Ms. Intelmann made the statement Monday when she presented her Letter of Credence as EU ambassador to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Monrovia.

Ambassador Intelmann, who is resident in Monrovia, expressed excitement to be in Liberia and recounted her years of service at the United Nations where many issues pertaining to Liberia were handled.

“At the UN, we heard many good things about Liberia beyond the Ebola crisis. I am glad to be here because the EU’s relations with Liberia are excellent and historical thus I look forward to working together with the government being in the driving seat,” the EU envoy said.

Speaking earlier, President Sirleaf expressed appreciation on behalf of the Liberian Government and people for the EU’s long-standing friendship and solidarity with the country, according to the release quoted by the Liberia News Agency.

The EU, President Sirleaf noted, is one of Liberia’s primary partners and the relationship goes a long way, stressing that the EU has stood with Liberia since the rebuilding process of the country began at the end of the civil war.

President Sirleaf said the EU’s support to organizations such as ECOWAS, the African Union, and others enabled them to play a pivotal role in Liberia’s Ebola fight and expressed confidence that the disease will be beaten out of Liberia soon.
