The Indian Ambassador to Liberia, Mr. Dinesh Bhatia, has cautioned Liberia to watch out for people purporting to be Indian nationals seeking visas to perpetrate their clandestine activities.
Ambassador Bhatia emphasized that if something is not done to discourage such practice it could cause embarrassment for both Liberia and India.
The India envoy also urged Liberia to establish a diplomatic presence by reopening its Mission in New Delhi, India.
The Indian Envoy, who is resident in Côte d’Ivoire, made the assertion when he donated 300 pieces of thermometers and six bilateral scholarships to the Government and people of Liberia.
A Ministry of Foreign Affairs release said the scholarships are for deserving Liberian students to undergo post-graduate studies in India.
The thermometers are to be distributed among needy institutions, including schools and health facilities to prevent the Ebola virus transmission in the country.
The donation was made Monday, July 6, when he paid a courtesy call on the Liberian Foreign Minister Augustine Ngafuan at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
