Envoy Bayazit Promises To Energize Turkey-Liberia Relations

MONROVIA, March 27 (LINA) -The new Turkish Ambassador to Liberia, Ms. Penbe Nersrin Bayazit, has emphasized the importance of Turkey-Liberia ties, vowing to ensure that during her tenure cooperation is enhanced in every possible field.

Ambassador Bayazit admitted that the present level of bilateral trade between Turkey and Liberia does not reflect the potential of the two countries.

She expressed her country’s willingness to cooperate with Liberia in fields including agriculture, health, education as well as the development of small and medium size enterprises and sharing of experiences.

An Executive Mansion release says she made the statement while presenting her Letters of Credence to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf during a ceremony at the Foreign Ministry Friday.

Ambassador Bayazit, on behalf of the Government and people of Turkey and on behalf of the President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, expressed condolence and solidarity for the loses Liberia sustained as a result of the Ebola virus.

“The suffering and the challenges caused by the Ebola virus in Liberia have saddened our President and the people of Turkey deeply,” she said, noting that they were also happy to observe that Liberia’s determined struggle with the epidemic has yielded such positive results.

The new Turkish Envoy noted her country’s effort to provide assistance to Liberia and other Ebola afflicted countries both bilaterally and through the United Nations, World Health Organization and African Union.

President Sirleaf welcomed Ambassador Bayazit to Liberia and hoped that both countries can work together to see if they can revisit some of the understandings that have been reached.

The Liberian leader noted the several exchanges of high level visits between the two countries and touched on Agreements already consummated.

She hoped that with the arrival of the new Ambassador both countries can review where these Agreements stand, what needs to be done, and to see if the provisions of some of the Agreements can materialize.

President Sirleaf briefed the new Turkish envoy about the Government’s Vision 2030 and the five-year slice, Agenda for Transformation, which was well on its way when the Ebola virus disease struck and created a major setback to all the plans.
