Members of the House of Representatives have mandated two committees to scrutinize “An Air Services Agreement” between the government of Liberia and the kingdom of Morocco.
Plenary’s decision was reached at the regular Tuesday session, April 26, during the 24th day sitting of the 5th Session, based on the submission of the agreement for ratification by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
According to the Chief Executive, the agreement grants both countries the right to land and fly over each other’s territory.
It also intends to ensure the highest degree of safety and security in international air transport and reaffirms the countries’ concern about acts and threats against the safety of civil aviation employees.
The Agreement was signed on April 20, 2011.
“The agreement, once ratified, will improve the aviation sector of our country,” President Sirleaf stated in her letter to the lawmakers.
Following the reading and debate on the Air Services Agreement, the House Plenary forwarded the instrument to the Committees on Transport and Judiciary to advise that body within two weeks, based on a motion proffered by Hon. Eugene Fallah Kparkar of Electoral District 1, Lofa County.
