Korea Invites Liberia To 4th Korea-Africa Summit

MONROVIA, October 12 (LINA) - The Republic of Korea has extended an invitation to Liberia to attend this year’s 4th Korea-Africa Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Korean Ambassador Noh Kyu-duk extended the invitation during a meeting with Foreign Minister Marjon Kamara at the Foreign Ministry on Monday in Monrovia.

Ambassador Noh told Foreign Minister Kamara that her Korean counterpart will also participate in the Summit which is tentatively scheduled for December 6 - 7 and that its venue has been moved to Ethiopia, instead of Korea, where it has usually been held.

According to a Foreign Ministry release, the Korean Ambassador also informed Minister Kamara that other African Foreign Ministers are expected to attend the upcoming Summit.

He indicated that Liberia being the Chair of the ECOWAS sub-region, Foreign Minister Kamara could also represent ECOWAS at the forum, as he hopes that the minister would accept the invitation despite her busy schedule. 

He informed the Foreign Minister that his colleague accredited near Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and the Chadian Foreign Minister, who is the Summit Coordinator, are working out modalities to finalize a suitable date for the Summit, taking into account other important dates on the Continent.

“We are quite sure that December 6-7, 2016 would be feasible for this important event and we hope that Your Excellency will be in attendance,” he told the Liberian Foreign Minister. 

Responding to the invitation from the Korean government, Minister Kamara hoped that the necessary paperwork would be done in time in order that Liberia may be adequately prepared for the upcoming summit.

She informed the Korean Ambassador that an ECOWAS Summit has been scheduled for December 14.

Minister Kamara was joined in the meeting with Ambassador Noh by Dehpue Zuo, Deputy Minister for International Cooperation and Economic Integration and Rosetta Nagbe-Jarkollie, Assistant Minister of Afro-Asian.
