Pres. Sirleaf Hails Austria On 61st National Day

MONROVIA, October 26 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has conveyed a message of congratulations to the Government and People of the Federal Republic of Austria on the 61st Anniversary of that country’s National Day.

The Austrian National Day is celebrated on October 26 and relates to political developments after World War II.

After the end of the War, Austria was occupied by the four Allied forces (Soviet Union, United States, Great Britain, and France).

As the last remaining foreign troops left Austrian territory on October 25, the country considered October 26 was de facto the first day on which Austria had regained its status as an independent and sovereign state.

According to a Foreign Ministry release, in the message to Mr. Christian Kern, Federal Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Austria, President Sirleaf, on behalf of the Government and People of Liberia, and in her own name, extended warmest congratulations to the Government and People of Austria, as they commemorate the 61st Anniversary of the Passage of the Law of Permanent Neutrality.

President Sirleaf stated that for many years, Austria has continued to serve as a major international diplomatic epicentre which significantly contributes to global peace and security, particularly, through United Nations led peace-keeping missions.

“We are pleased to note the perspectives of our two countries on matters of global concern that continue to converge and we remain resolute in our shared pursuit for the continual promotion of world peace and prosperity”, the Liberian leader stated.

She then wished for Chancellor Kern and the people of Austria a joyful celebration.
