In the message to His Excellency, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, President of the Federal Republic of Germany, President George Manneh Weah, on behalf of Liberia, extended heartfelt congratulations to the German leader, and through him, to the Government and people of Germany, as they commemorate this historic landmark in their national existence.

According to a Foreign Ministry release, President George Manneh Weah also expressed confidence that as Liberians join the people of Germany in this memorable celebration, the two leaders will reflect on the resilience of the human spirit demonstrated by the German people as they withstood the aftermath of World War II, which separated families and friends and artificially divided Germany.

The Liberian leader further recounted that despite the historical calamities, the world witnessed the restoration of a unified Germany, the landmark event of November 9, 1989, “which brought down the Berlin Wall and subsequently led to the Unification of Germany”.

Furthermore, President Weah stated that as the people of Germany celebrates this auspicious occasion, his Government will work closely with the Federal Republic of Germany in renewing cooperation in several fields including agriculture, science and technology, education etc.

President Weah then wished for President Steinmeier good health and for the people of Germany joyful celebration.
