President Sirleaf Meets Former Spanish Prime Minister

MONROVIA, October 25 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has received in audience the former deputy prime minister of Spain, Madam María Teresa Fernández de la Vega.

According to an Executive Mansion release, Ms. de la Vega, who is also president of the Mujeres por Africa (Women for Africa Foundation), is in Liberia to assess a project her organization is undertaking and to meet with health officials.

She paid a courtesy call on the Liberian leader at her temporary office at the Foreign Ministry on Friday, October 23.

President Sirleaf welcomed the former Spanish deputy prime minister to Liberia and expressed deepest sympathy for the death of her compatriot, Spanish Missionary Liguel Pajares, who previously worked for St. Joseph’s Catholic Hospital and died of Ebola.

In response to the proposals advanced by Madam la Vega to help train health officers and rebuild the health sector, the Liberian leader indicated that all of her proposals fit within the country’s health plan to rebuild the sector, noting that training is a priority for the government.

She said she would take advantage of all the goodwill to ensure that the health system is rebuilt and that there will not be a reoccurrence of what happened in 2014, the release said.
