Dean of African Methodist Episcopal University visits Cuban Embassy in Monrovia

Monrovia, January 15, 2021.- Responding to an invitation made by Cuban Chief of Mission Mercedes L. Martinez Herrera last year, we received in our diplomatic headquarters the visit of the Dean of the African Methodist Episcopal University Professor Augustine Konneh.

In the meeting, which took place in a cordial and fraternal atmosphere, the interest in establishing links between the Liberian University and Cuban Universities as a way of strengthening the bilateral bonds between both countries was evidenced.

Professor Konneh, a scholar of the subject of Cuba and an admirer of the achievements of the Greater Antilles in spite of the economic, commercial and financial blockade of which it is a victim, referred to the historic relationship between Liberia and Cuba, the solidarity work of the Cuban people and the selfless aid that the island has provided to his country.

The occasion was propitious to deal with current issues of the national events in both Liberia and Cuba, being present the repudiation of the inclusion of Cuba in the list of countries sponsoring terrorism, the condemnation of the blockade against Cuba and the recognition of the work carried out by the Cuban medical brigades in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
