His Excellency Urban Sjostrom, Ambassador-designate to Sweden with resident in Monrovia Liberia, has paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Musa Timothy Kabba at his office.
His Excellency Sjostrom congratulated Mr. Timothy on his appointment as Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and also congratulated the Government and People of Sierra Leone on the country’s election to the United Nations Security Council non-permanent seat (2024-2025).
He expressed hope that Sierra Leone will not only achieve its goals but the goals of other supporting nations as well.
His Excellency Sjostrom said that over the years, Sweden and Sierra Leone have been enjoying multilateral cooperation through the United Nations and European Union platforms. But it is time both countries established strong bilateral ties which Sweden is committed to doing.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Musa Timothy Kabba thanked Ambassador Sjostrom for such a visit as it reiterates the long-standing relations the country has with Sweden.
Minister Kabba said that the idea of establishing bilateral cooperation with Sweden comes at the right time as His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio has launched the big ‘5 Game Changers’ which gives more opportunities for foreign direct investment in the area of agriculture, energy, youth empowerment, tourism, and culture, innovation, and technology.
The Minister also highlighted the government’s effort in building strong human capital by investing in education and technology. These he said are the foundation of building a strong nation.
He reiterated the government and the ministry’s commitment to maintaining a strong bilateral relation and to always reach out to him whenever the need arises.
