Korea Ponders Liberia’s Post-Ebola Recovery Proposal

MONROVIA, October 12 (LINA) - Liberia’s post-Ebola recovery proposal is “a very important aspect of Korea’s engagement” with the country, the Asian nation’s Ambassador Noh Kyu-duk has disclosed.

Ambassador Noh, who is resident in Nigeria, explained that he has held formal discussions with Liberia’s Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Al-hassan Conteh, who, he said, has promised to ensure that the proposal would be submitted by November to Korea for its intervention.

According to a Foreign Ministry release, the Korean diplomat made the disclosure Monday, October 10, when he paid a courtesy call on Foreign Minister Marjon V. Kamara at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Monrovia.

During the meeting held in the conference room of the Foreign Ministry, the two officials exchanged views on critical bilateral issues of mutual benefit to their respective governments and peoples.

The Korean envoy also disclosed plans to organize a two-week training program for Liberian health professionals in controlling and managing infectious diseases in Liberia.

Responding, Minister Kamara thanked Ambassador Noh and his government for the huge bilateral assistance to Liberia, particularly during the Ebola crisis.

She also thanked the Korean diplomat for his personal role in cementing the cordial bilateral relations between Liberia and his country, adding that the issue of infectious disease control is a critical challenge facing the Liberian health sector.

Kamara reflected on the past experience of the deadly Ebola virus disease outbreak, adding that “there are many things that Liberia needs to do in order to strengthen its health sector.” 

Minister Kamara lauded the Korean Government for its decision to organize training for Liberian health professionals in order to tackle infectious diseases, stressing, “The training will greatly help our health professionals.”

The Liberian Foreign Minister assured Ambassador Noh that she would make sure that the interests and rights of the Korean investors are protected under the law through the Justice Ministry.

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