Pres. Sirleaf Hails Liberia-U.S Ties

By Prince S. Nagbe

MONROVIA, Feb 10 (LINA) – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says her Government is pleased with the partnership Liberia has had with the United States Government over the years.

She made the statement Monday when she officially commissioned two boats donated to the Liberian Coast Guard by the United States Government during ceremonies held at the Liberia Coast Guard Base on the Bushrod Island.

President Sirleaf attributed the peace that Liberia now enjoys largely to its partnership with the United States.

She observed that the partnership between the two countries has helped Liberia produce a very dedicated, committed and professional army as a result of the quality training it got from the US Government.

The Liberian leader also attributed the high level performance of the Liberia Coast Guard over the past few years in protecting Liberian territorial waters to the nature of professionalism that has been imparted into them by US experts.

President Sirleaf lauded the U. S. Government for the donation of two additional boats to the Liberia Coast Guard, aimed at building the capacity and strength of the force; indicating that it will help make the Coast Guard more efficient and effective in the discharge of its duties.

The two boats, US 004 and US 005 were commissioned in honor of former interim President Ruth Sando Perry and former UL President Dr. Mary Antoinette Brown Sherman.

President Sirleaf said the Government’s decision to honor the two Liberian women is due to the numerous contributions they made over the years in helping Liberia to reach where it is today, adding “though they are gone their footprints remain with us today.”
