Pres. Sirleaf  Hails D.R. Congo On 56th Anniversary

MONROVIA, June 28 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has sent a message of congratulations to the Government and people of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) on the occasion of the 56th Independence Anniversary of that country.

June 30 each year is celebrated as a national holiday to commemorate the D.R. Congo’s Independence Day from Belgium in 1960. The DRC was a colony of Belgium from 1908 to 1960.

According to a Foreign Ministry release, President Sirleaf, in her message to her Congolese counterpart, President Joseph Kabila, whilst extending warm felicitations to the Government and people of
the D. R. Congo, relished the consistency and endurance of the fraternal relations between their two countries as the DRC count 56 years of great strides.

She hoped that their two countries will continue to work together in
furtherance of the principles of the African Union and the United Nations which aims at promoting peace, security and cooperation among
all nations.

The Liberian leader then prayed that the Almighty God will endow President Kabila with abundant wisdom and strength as he leads his
compatriots to greater prosperity.
