The four missions opened this year are Sierra Leone, Sao Tome, Togo and Liberia.

In order to formalise the establishment of the Indian mission, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Liberia, Indian Embassy in Cote D’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), wrote in a letter, “The esteemed Ministry is therefore, requested to kindly expedite necessary clearance for establishing the Embassy of India in Monrovia as well as Agreement of the designated Ambassador of India to Liberia, which has been forwarded to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for necessary clearance.”

“The Embassy of India avails itself of this opportunity to renew to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Liberia the assurances of its highest consideration,” the letter added.
