President George Manneh Weah has congratulated the Government and people of Canada on the occasion commemorating that country’s 151st Independence anniversary.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Monrovia issued the release on Friday, 29 June ahead of Canada’s 151st Independence anniversary celebration on Sunday, 1 July.
In the message to the Governor-General of Canada, the Right Honorable Julie Payette, President Weah said on behalf of the Government and people of Liberia, and in his own name, it gave him immense pleasure to extend heartfelt felicitations and best wishes to the Government and People of Canada on the auspicious occasion of the 151st Independence anniversary of that country.
The Liberian President further expressed deep appreciation to the Government and people of Canada for the historic bonds of cooperation and friendship subsisting between the two countries and peoples.
He recounted that the longstanding ties between both nations led to the historic visit of the two Canadian ships to Liberia in February 2018, to seek activities in sailing with Liberian sailors.
He said it presented the opportunity for exchanges on efforts to further deepen future bilateral ties in many spheres. President Weah then hoped and prayed that the people of Canada will continue to enjoy prosperity and blessings of peace and unity as they celebrate this historic milestone.–Press release
