President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, on Thursday, 24 March, signed a Book of Condolence at the Belgian Mission near Brussels Airline on Ashum Street, Monrovia. Mrs. Sirleaf did not speak with newsmen after signing the book of condolence for recent terror attack experienced by the Government and people of the Kingdom of Belgium.
The Belgian Capital, Brussels attracted the world’s attention, following Tuesday’s simultaneous terrorist explosions that killed more 30 victims and wounded several others at the Brussels International Airport and a city metro station.
President Sirleaf was accompanied by cabinet members for the signing ceremony in Monrovia, and briefly spoke with staff at Brussels Airlines before her departure. Liberia’s Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that President Sirleaf expressed deep regrets following the incident, saying Liberia was saddened by the loss of lives resulting from these dastardly acts.
“Please accept, Your Majesty, our thoughts and deepest condolences to you and through you to the bereaved families. May God provide you the strength and courage to endure this difficult period,” the Leader was quoted as saying.
