President Sirleaf Applauds U.S. on 241st Independence Day


Promises to Expand Bilateral Cooperation

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has extended felicitations to the President of the United States Mr. Donald Trump on that country’s 241st Independence Anniversary today.

Independence Day, also referred to as Fourth of July, in the United States, is the annual celebration of nationhood. In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence which proclaimed the independence of the United States of America from Great Britain and its king, then George III.

According to a Foreign Affairs Ministry release, President Sirleaf said, “As the people of the United States commemorate another milestone in their nationhood, we recall the historic bond of friendship and cooperation between our two countries which continues to witness exponential heights.”  She added that as Liberia’s largest bilateral partner, her government will continue to engage with the United States within the existing bilateral frameworks, most prominently, the Liberia-US Partnership Dialogue for the mutual prosperity of their two peoples, as they deepen the commitment to global peace, security, and sustainable economic development.
