Liberia Committed To Tackling Terrorism In Africa - Pres. Sirleaf

MONROVIA, June 11 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has said that the Liberian Government is committed to tackling the increased level of terrorism in Africa.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader made the statement when she addressed journalists at the Roberts International Airport Tuesday upon her return to the country after attending the 41st G-7 Summit in Germany. The meeting was held from June 7-8.

A G-7 Summit resolution had pledged to engage global terrorism, climate change, food security, energy, health, education, migration, civil conflicts, nuclear safety, trade and investment and foreign affairs.

Briefing reporters also on the issue of economic and security developments, President Sirleaf pointed out that indeed these issues are cardinal to the overall rehabilitation of the country’s power generating sector.

The G-7 is an informal forum of heads of state and government of seven industrialized nations, including France, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom, United States of America, Canada and host Germany.

As a consequence of the oil and financial crisis, the heads of state and government of the six largest industrial nations held their first World Economic Summit in 1975.

Canada joined the group in 1976; Russia in 1998, but is suspended for the time being following its annexation of Crimea last year.

The European Union is also a member.
