REASONS BEHIND RECALL OF LIBERIA’S AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED STATES REVEALED

Date:

The reason behind the recall of Mr. George Patterns, Liberia’s Ambassador to the United States, has been revealed.

Liberian top and trusted Liberian Journalist has revealed that President George Weah recalled Ambassador George Patterns from Washington, D.C. because of an alleged diplomatic blunder.

The Journalist stated that Ambassador Pattern’s trouble began when a letter he had allegedly written to the United States Department of State on August 7. 2022 leaked to the press.

It is alleged that the Liberian Ambassador in the letter was seeking permission for President George Weah to hold an audience with U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris during his trip to the United States.

Unfortunately, for the Liberian Ambassador, the communication was allegedly leaked to the press.

The Liberian Journalist posted on his Facebook page that President Weah is infuriated by the leaked diplomatic letter which should have been only for the eyes of the State Department.

It is not clear who actually leaked the letter, but sources told Smart News Liberia that in-house fighting at Liberia’s ministry of foreign affairs between Minister Maxwell Kemayah and his deputy, Henry Fahnbulleh has spilled over at the Liberian Embassy in Washington D.C; and that there is a likelihood that the communication may have been leaked on purpose by someone at the embassy.

However, the Journalist pointed out that the issue of the leaked communication annoyed the Liberian leader, thus his action to recall Ambassador Patterns from Washington.

The Journalist wrote: “Authentic! This is what landed the Ambassador in trouble because the President was never consulted and it leaked in the media”, citing a foreign ministry source he claimed hinted to him.

He said the communication from Ambassador Patterns was begging the US Department of State to allow president Weah to meet with the US vice president.

The Liberian Government has been spending millions of Liberian taxpayers’ money to hire lobbyists in the United States that will allow the president to meet top U.S. officials including President Joe Biden.

David Kolleh, the Assistant Minister at the Ministry of Information could not deny nor confirm the report but said all workings of the Liberian Government regarding foreign nations are done through diplomatic channels.
