Pres. Sirleaf Consoles Israel Over Death Of Ex-PM Peres

MONROVIA, September 28 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has sent a message of consolation to her counterpart, Mr. Reuven Rivlin, President of the State of Israel, for the passing of Mr. Shimon Peres, a former President and twice Prime Minister of Israel.

According to a Foreign Ministry release, in her Condolence Message to President Rivlin, President Sirleaf said: “It is with profound shock and deep sorrow that we have learned of the death of Mr. Shimon Peres a towering political figure, who served twice as Prime Minister and also as President of your great country.”

The Liberian Leader further stated that Mr. Peres, who also won the Nobel Peace Prize, will be remembered for the formidable role he played in the founding of the State of Israel and the most prominent effort to consolidate lasting peace with Palestine and Israel’s Arab neighbors under the Oslo Peace Accord of 1993.

In the message, President Sirleaf, on behalf of the Government and People of Liberia, and in her own name, extended heartfelt condolences to the Government and People of the State of Israel, especially the bereaved family, for the irreparable loss sustained.

“It is our hope that the resilience and strength that the People of Israel have always demonstrated during challenging circumstances will be brought to bear during this difficult period of national mourning,” the President said with deep regrets.
