Liberia: Saudi Arabia Reopens Liberian Embassy

Broken diplomatic relations between Liberia and its Saudi Arabian counterpart were since July 14 of this year restored, a diplomatic communication addressed to the Liberian Embassy in Dakar, Senegal said last month.

In that letter, the Saudi Arabian authorities warned Liberia that the reopening of its embassy in Riyadh was subject to the Liberian Government's commitment to address abuses in the past.

The Saudi authorities specified in warning Liberia that "breach of the rules by diplomats or members of the Diplomatic Mission" will not be tolerated. The communication further warned that the reopening of the Liberian Embassy shall not give rise to any financial compensation from them.

"The Embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in Dakar thanks the Embassy of the Republic of Liberia in Dakar for its kind intervention and seizes this occasion to renew the assurances of its highest consideration," the communication said.

The Saudi Arabian authorities expressed compliments to the Liberian Embassy in Daka, and said they were honored to transmit the decision of the Government of Saudi Arabia to reopen Liberia's Embassy in Riyadh.

"The Saudi Arabia Authorities state that this reopening is subject to the Liberian Government's commitment to address the abuses in the past, knowing that no breach of the rules by diplomats or members of the Diplomatic Mission will be tolerated," the Saudi authorities said.
