U.S.-Liberia Ties Unfazed By Change In Gov’t - US Official 

MONROVIA, January 16 (LINA) – Relations between the United States and Liberia will continue to be further strengthened, irrespective of change in the U.S. or Liberian Governments, a State Department official has said.

According to a dispatch from the Liberian Embassy in the U.S., Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield made the statement at the close of the third round of the U.S.-Liberia Partnership Dialogue at the State Department in Washington.

Noting that 2017 will be “a momentous year” for Liberia, which is holding Presidential and General Elections, Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield said “it will also be a momentous year for the United States.”

“In 10 days, we will inaugurate our 45th President, and soon thereafter, there will be many new faces at the State Department and throughout our government. Some of us whom you’ve known for a long time, including me, will soon be moving on to new chapters in our lives,” she stated.

Thomas-Greenfield further noted: “While between now and the next Partnership Dialogue in 2018 many of the participants on both delegations will change, what will not change is our commitment together.”

The U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, who headed her Government’s delegation, said Liberia has been “a strong partner” to the United States on issues of concern before the United Nations and regional bodies.

She also labelled Liberia as a stalwart partner in working together to fight transnational crime, promote democracy, and protect citizens in both countries from diseases with disregard for national boundaries.

“We have been there for each other and this will continue as our foundation,” she reaffirmed.

Assistant Secretary Thomas-Greenfield and Liberia’s Foreign Minister Marjon V. Kamara, who headed the Liberian Government delegation, signed a Joint Statement on the Partnership Dialogue.

According to the Statement, the U.S.-Liberia Partnership Dialogue convened four working groups focused on ‘Overcoming Challenges to Liberia’s Economy;’ ‘Expanding Agriculture Production and Trade;’ ‘Enhancing Liberia’s Investment and Infrastructure Climate;’ and ‘Supporting Post-Ebola Recovery and Health Strengthening Efforts.’
