According to a Foreign Ministry release, President George Manneh Weah further assured the Jamaican leader of Liberia’s appreciation for the historic bond of friendship and cooperation subsisting between Liberia and Jamaica which he said was manifested by the contributions of Jamaican police officers to the United Nations Missions in Liberia, (UNMIL) to assist in the peace-building process.     


The Liberian leader then prayed that the people of Jamaica will continue to enjoy prosperity and the blessings of peace and unity.
