Five new ambassadors from Cote D'Ivoire, Senegal, Morocco, United Arab Emirates and Indonesia presented their letters of credence to His Excellency President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma at State House on Friday, 14th July 2017, to mark the beginning of their mission in Sierra Leone.

The President reiterated the country's determination to strengthen the economic, social and cultural cooperation between Sierra Leone and their respective countries.

As Chair of the African Union Committee of Ten Heads of State and Government on the Reform of the United Nations Security Council, President Koroma also canvassed the support of the newly accredited ambassadors for the Common African Position as espoused in the Ezulwini Consensus and Sirte Declaration.

Virtually expressing same sentiments, the five ambassadors assured of commitment to increase and further strengthen bilateral ties between Sierra Leone and their home countries.

In his presentation, the Indonesian Ambassador Mr. Mansyur Pangeran disclosed plans to accelerate bilateral relations and cooperation in various sectors including the economy, trade, agriculture, education, technology and people to people contact. To further build on the existing relationship, the Ambassador vowed to encourage direct interaction and stronger collaboration between business communities, including chambers of commerce and industry of the two countries to enhance bilateral trade.

In the same vein, the Ivorian Ambassador Feni Kouakou expressed willingness and determination of the Ivorian government to revive what he referred to as most beautiful fleuron of the Ivorian – Sierra Leonean cooperation. To pursue and reinforce the gains of the bilateral cooperation, he expressed need for the two countries to multiply efforts for the holding of the first session of the Ivorian – Sierra Leone Joint Great Commission for which the Act on its establishment has been signed on September 28, 2013 in Yamoussoukro, Cote d’Ivoire. He assured of his commitment to contribute immensely to the success of the bilateral relations between Sierra Leone and Cote D’Ivoire.
