The President of the Republic, H.E. Dr. George Manneh Weah has described as concerning, recent images of a mob entering and vandalizing what has come to be known as the symbol of American democracy, the United States capitol.
While condemning the incident, a statement from the office of the President says, the Liberian Leader assured Americans that Liberia still has faith in the U.S. democratic system of governance from which Liberia’s is modeled.
President Weah said he shares the sentiments of all those who have been adversely impacted by the violence. “As my country’s foremost international partner, and drawing on our historical ties, Liberia stands in solidarity with the American people during these trying times,” he said.
The Liberian Chief Executive also stated that he believes in the fundamental strength of American democratic institutions, and that the country still remains a beacon of hope for global democracy and governance.
The statement released Saturday as Weah continues his visit to Ghana where he since participated in Ghanaian President’s inauguration.
