(LINA) – President George M. Weah has assured Liberians in the Diaspora that government will ensure that embassies are established in any country where a considerable number of Liberians are residing once there exists no diplomatic mission to seek their interest.

Speaking to journalists upon his return from Israel recently, the Liberian leader disclosed that he has mandated Foreign Minister Dee- Maxwell Kemayah to effectively begin to work on the possibility of establishing embassies in countries where many Liberians are and there is no embassy.

 Pres. Weah added that the Foreign Minister will make sure that Liberia establishes embassies in all of the sisterly countries that Liberia has ties with and doesn’t have an embassy there.

Meanwhile, commenting on his trip to Israel, the President told the journalists that the mission was “a holy trip” but also he also met the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Isaac Herzog to have the two countries foster cooperation for sustainable development.

The Liberian leader revealed that he and his entourage also visited all of the holy sites in Israel where they were able to pray for families, friends and also for the continued existence of peace in Liberia.

 “While others were going to juju men, I was at the holy ground in Israel,” said President Weah, noting his belief in the Supreme Creator.

The Liberian leader encouraged his compatriots to pray for people who have opportunities as a means of tapping into that person’s blessing rather than getting angry and jealous.

 Pres. Weah appreciated the President and people of Israel for giving him the opportunity to reflect on God and not just to discuss politics.
