Pres. Sirleaf Commends The Gambia’s Role n ECOMOG

MONROVIA, March 30 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has commended the West Africa nation of The Gambia for its invaluable contributions to the ECOMOG initiative that aimed at the search for lasting peace in Liberia during the height of the civil conflict.

President Sirleaf also commended the country’s solidarity in hosting Liberian political parties and interest groups that determined the formation of the Interim Government of National Unity (IGNU) in 1990.

According to an Executive Mansion release, President Sirleaf made the commendation when Mrs. Fatou Ndeye Gaye, Ambassador-Designate of the Republic of Gambia with residence in Freetown, Sierra Leone presented her Letters of Credence on Tuesday, March 29, in Monrovia.

The Liberian leader then welcomed the Ambassador-Designate and expressed the hope that the relations between the two countries will continue to be cemented in the years ahead.

She thanked The Gambia for paying host to scores of Liberian refugees who sought refuge in that sisterly country during the years of conflict and acknowledged the hospitality extended them.

The Liberian leader expressed delight in progress The Gambia has made in the tourism sector and how it was impacting the economy and noted that Liberia is ready at all times to benefit from the expertise and experiences of The Gambia in this sector.

Presenting her letters of credence, Ambassador-Designate Fatou Ndeye Gaye conveyed on behalf of President Yahyah Jammeh a special message to his sister, President Sirleaf, for the impressive administration of her native Liberia.

Ambassador Gaye called for private partnership between Liberian and Gambian entrepreneurs to forge areas of common interest and explore new horizons of economic cooperation.
