President George Weah on Monday received Letters of Credence from the new Lebanese Ambassador to Liberia, Henri Kastoun at his Ministry of Foreign Affairs office in Monrovia, a release from the Executive Mansion has said.

In his welcome remark, President Weah informed Ambassador Kastoun that he was excited to receive his Letters of Credence, and said he looks forward to strengthening the relationship between Liberia and Lebanon.

The President also emphasized the need for both countries to constructively engage one another, while aiming for mutual benefits. He then called on Amb. Kastoun to engage the Lebanese Community in Liberia and ensure a fair and business-friendly atmosphere.

The President noted that the sale of expired goods is not good for the health of Liberians. He urged Amb. Kastoun to prevail on Lebanese merchants in Liberia to ensure that goods brought into the country are not substandard and that their actions and activities are within the confines of the law.

The Lebanese Envoy thanked President Weah, and said he was honored by the opportunity to present his Letters of Credence at this “very important time in the history of Liberia.”

Ambassador Kastoun extended heartfelt felicitations to President Weah on his ascendancy to the Presidency of Liberia, and expressed appreciation for the warm welcome he received so far.

He underscored the need to strengthen the bilateral relationship between Liberia and Lebanon, and commended the people of Liberia for the hospitality accorded the Lebanese Community in the country.

Amb. Kastoun then presented a special message from the Prime Minister of Lebanon, Saad Hariri, whom he said expressed his government’s willingness to work with the Liberian government in exploring business opportunities.
