Liberia’s Brown Becomes Chair Of ECOWAS UN Envoys

MONROVIA, July 10 (LINA) - Liberia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Lewis Garseedah Brown, has pledged to work cooperatively with colleagues from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) toward advancing the common goals and objectives of the sub-regional bloc.

According to a dispatch from New York, Ambassador Brown made the statement when he formally took over the Chairmanship of the grouping of ECOWAS Ambassadors at the United Nations from Ambassador Fode Seck of Senegal on Friday at the Permanent Mission of Senegal in New York.

While noting the various challenges confronting the sub-regional body, the Liberian diplomat lauded the important role being played by ECOWAS in fostering peace, stability, the rule of law and strengthening democratic institutions which, according to him, have placed the region in an enviable position in the comity of nations.

The Liberian envoy urged his colleagues to join him in efforts aimed at increasing coordination toward advancing the ECOWAS Agenda at the global level and to ensure that success is achieved in such undertakings.

Ambassador Brown conveyed special best wishes of solidarity and goodwill from President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, in her capacity as Chair of the Authority of Heads of States and Governments, to the Ambassadors of ECOWAS and their respective governments, and paid special tribute to the outgoing chairman, Ambassador Fode Seck, for his stewardship.

For his part, Senegalese diplomat Seck, welcomed Ambassador Brown and hoped that his assumption of the Chairmanship will help strengthen the organization's presence at the United Nations.

He emphasized the need for increased communication among member states of ECOWAS in the pursuit of their common objectives.

Also speaking during the occasion, the Permanent Observer of ECOWAS to the United Nations, Mr. Kone Tanou, expressed the need for increased coordination among the Member States of ECOWAS.

He paid tribute to the outgoing chairman and congratulated the incoming chairman promising to work closely with his office to move the organization forward.
