US President Joe Biden has extended an invitation to President George Weah to attend this year’s US-Africa Summit in December.

US Ambassador to Liberia Michael McCarthy made the disclosure Tuesday, July 26, 2022, at programs marking Liberia’s 175th Independence Anniversary in Monrovia.

He said:” President Biden wants President Weah attend the Summit in person, and would be happy to welcome the Liberian Leader to Washington, D.C.”

The Democracy conference is intended to renew global commitment to democracy amid challenges.

Ambassador McCarthy said:” Liberia’s selection is based on its consistency in commitment to democratic governance compared to other African nations.”

The conference brings together leaders from government, civil society, and the private sector in a shared effort to set an affirmative agenda for democratic renewal.

Ambassador McCarthy also lauded President Weah and government for the stance against Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.

Meanwhile, President Weah has publicly honored and accepted the US Government’s invitation.

President Weah said:” I am pleased, on behalf of the country and people, to have received the invitation to attend such hugely significant conference.”

At the conference, the President promised to high light the deep historical ties between Liberia and the United States, as well as implore the need to further cement such bond of friendship.

In the interim, President Weah has conveyed his appreciation and gratitude to President Joe Biden for the support his Government continues to render Liberia.

In a related development, the 175th Independence National Orator has challenged fellow officials of the Liberian Government to work for the people of Liberia.

Commerce Minister Marwine Diggs said:” Instead of ‘romanticizing’ the challenges of the country, officials Government must stick to their responsibilities for which they were entrusted.”

Delivering the national oration for the Independence Day Tuesday, July 26, 2022, Minister Diggs said women must also be prioritized in such regard to change the course of history.

She particularly called on the President and Vice President to continuously partner, in order to make true impact on the lives of the Liberian people.

She said:” Though it would take time to fully rebuild after years of civil war, a strong partnership between President George Weah and Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor will make immense difference in the governance process.”

Meanwhile, Minister Mawine Diggs has applauded President Weah for appointing women to top political leadership positions.

At the same time, Minister Diggs said:” Despite political differences, Liberia remains the common denominator that should unite every citizen.”

She said while it is true that democracy allows descending opinions, unity remains cardinal to the welfare of the citizenry.

According to her, reconciliation is a true requisite for massive developments that promotes common vision in the governance process of the country.

The National Orator wants citizens to recognize the importance of unity and reconciliation in every facet of national life, describing it as the surest way to attracting massive developments and external support.

Commerce Minister Diggs also frowned at some opposition figures and ‘Talk Show’ hosts using their platforms to taint the image of the country.

Madam Diggs expressed shock at the amount of information being spread on social media with the intent to put citizens against the Government.

She said those ‘Talk Show’ hosts and politicians often spew out damping criticisms without offering any solution.

The Commerce Minister wonders why some members of the opposition would speak so negatively about the Country they intend to govern.
