 “I would like to note with joy, your continual support to the many organizations that are involved with supporting the recovery and rebuilding efforts in Liberia,” the Liberian leader indicated.

The Liberian President then wished for His Majesty’s personal well being, and for the people of the Kingdom of Spain, happy celebration with continued peace and prosperity.
