LIBERIA: Irish Envoy Says Pres. Sirleaf’s Ebola Efforts ‘Remarkable’

The Ambassador of Ireland, Dr. Sinead Walsh, has commended President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for the “remarkable job of defeating the Ebola virus.”
 
“Being based in Sierra Leone since the epidemic began, I am aware of how enormously challenging that was,” she said.
 
The Irish diplomat added that Liberia’s approach of promoting community ownership of the response is to be commended, and this same approach can strengthen long-term development efforts in the future.
 
Presenting her Letters of Credence, she disclosed that Irish Aid has opened an office in Monrovia, which allows the Irish Government to better engage with and support the Government and people of Liberia as specifically stated in Ireland’s new policy for international development of 2013.
 
According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader, while receiving six Ambassadors at separate ceremonies at her on Thursday, June 25, conveyed appreciation on behalf of the Liberian Government and people for the excellent and cordial relations subsisting between these countries and Liberia and in trying to uplift the bilateral relations to another level.
 
During the occasion, President Sirleaf received in separate audiences Letters of Credence from six Ambassadors, including Ms. Caroline Gudenus, Ambassador of Austria with residence in Dakar, Senegal; Mr. Alfonso Di Riso, Ambassador of Italy; Mr. Saudi Bin Saad Al-Thobaiti, Ambassador of Saudi Arabia with residence in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire; and Dr. Sinead Walsh, Ambassador of Ireland with residence in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
 
Others are Mr. Noh Kyu-duk, Ambassador of Korea and Mr. Harry Purwanto of Indonesia, with residence in Abuja, Nigeria.
