Germany Seeks Liberia’s Support For UN Security Council Seat

By Prince S. Nagbe

MONROVIA, September 14 (LINA) – The Government of Germany is calling on the Liberian Government to support its candidature for one of the two non-permanent seats on the United Nations Security Council.

The UN General Assembly will at its 72nd session scheduled to take place in 2018 hold election for two non-permanent seats on the Security Council which have been reserved for Western European and Other States Group for the 2019/2020 period.

Making the call when he presented his Letters of Credence to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in Monrovia on Tuesday, newly-accredited German Ambassador Hubert J. Jager said Liberia’s valuable support to Germany’s candidature would be highly appreciated.

According to Ambassador Jager, Germany is a resolute supporter of an effective multilateralism that defends the important role of the United Nations in international politics.

He said Germany also strongly believes that peace, security, human rights and development are interlinked and reinforcing, placing his country in the best position to occupy one of the seats.

The German envoy, who recalled the long-standing ties between the two countries, said Liberia belong to the select group of “German Development Partner Countries” and that the German-Liberian Partnership is also an important component of the EU-African-Partnership.

According to him, in more than 50 years of bilateral development cooperation, a total of almost 450 million Euros have been made available to Liberia by Germany, 290 million Euro of such amount that was made available since 2007.

He therefore pledged to do all he can to ensure that the cordial relationship that subsists between Liberia and Germany be further strengthened.
