PRES. WEAH ANNOUNCES ECOWAS ENDORSEMENT OF LIBERIA’S AMBITION FOR UNSC NON-PERMANENT SEAT

Date:

MONROVIA – President George Manneh Weah has disclosed that the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has endorsed Liberia’s quest for a non-permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

President Weah Sunday had made Liberia’s case for the non-permanent seat at the just-ended 163rd Extraordinary Summit of ECOWAS held in Bissau, the capital of Guinea Bissau.

In his address to the august body, the President sought the bloc’s unflinching support for a Non-Permanent Member of the United Nations Security Council to represent the Western Africa Region for the period 2026-2027.

Regarding his trip to Israel, he said his delegation had healthy and fruitful talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netahyanh and President Isaac Herzog of the State of Israel on strengthening the bilateral ties subsisting between the two countries and to foster more mutual benefits.

President Weah disclosed his trip was in the dear interest of the country, particularly on how Israel could be a help to the people of Liberia in terms of harnessing their advanced agricultural capacity.

The Liberian Leader also announced that Liberia is considering Israel request to open an embassy in Israel, saying that the Foreign Ministry will work out the detailed modalities.

“I think it is good for Liberia to have an embassy there because it will enable us to serve the interest of the citizens there, and for the enhancement of bilateral ties with Israel,” he stressed.

The President departed Liberia on July 1, 2023, for a working visit to the State of Israel, following which he flew to Guinea Bissau to attend the 163rd Extraordinary Summit of ECOWAS.
