3 MRU Leaders Slated For Post-Ebola Recovery Int’l Confab

MONROVIA, July 6 (LINA) -The Liberian President has disclosed that leaders of the Mano River Union (MRU) will shortly participate in an international conference called by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to review and mobilize support for the Regional Post-Ebola Recovery Plan. 

According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader was speaking Thursday, July 2, at programs in observance of the 239th Independence of the United States of America at the Executive Pavilion in Monrovia.

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf informed her audience that she was saying “post-Ebola because we are determined to contain this virus.” She encouraged the United States to give support to this conference.

Speaking on the just-released U.S. State Department Country Report on Human Rights Practices, President Sirleaf said she did read the Liberia 2014 Human Rights Report and has taken note of both the many positive things and several shortcomings in her government’s performance. 

The Liberian Chief Executive recounted the visit to Liberia on May 4 by former President Bill Clinton which, she underscored, signified the “depth of our relations and the strong support of the United States in our recovery and the gains made before the Ebola outbreak in Liberia.”

President Sirleaf maintained that the recent return of five out of the 108 Peace Corps Volunteers evacuated during the Ebola pandemic, and the visit of a high level delegation from the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Compact Team demonstrate the resolve of the American people to re-engage in areas that are critical to Liberia’s recovery.

“We look forward to the return of more Peace Corps Volunteers, and to the 3rd Edition of the U.S.-Liberia Partnership Dialogue to review bilateral cooperation in the five areas of our Post-Ebola Economic Recovery Plan – Health, Education, Agriculture, Infrastructure and Security - focusing on UNMIL transition,” she emphasized.

The Chief Executive said: “Madam Ambassador, I cannot say enough for the strong personal role you have played in strengthening the special relationship between our two countries, and the manner in which you coordinated the assistance rendered our country during the Ebola crisis.”

She praised Ambassador Malac for “being truly great” and said her administration would be glad if Ambassador Malac still has several months in Liberia, adding, “If this were no longer out of vogue, I would spread a lappa at your feet.”

Concluding, the Liberian leader said, “As we celebrate this historic day with you, it is our hope that the people of the United States will continue to enjoy the blessings of peace, prosperity, and continued economic growth and development.

It is the prayers of all Liberians that the bond of friendship, solidarity, and cooperation subsisting between our two countries will be further solidified for the mutual benefit of our two peoples.”
