MONROVIA – President George Manneh Weah on Monday, September 12, signed the Book of Condolence in honor of the late Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
The British Monarch died last Thursday at 96 years a few hours after she was put under medical observation at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. She served in the position for 70 years.
Accompanied by an array of Government Officials, President Weah performed the solemn diplomatic ritual at the British Embassy in Monrovia.
Earlier in a statement issued following the death of the Queen, President Weah expressed sadness and conveyed his deepest sympathy to the governments and peoples of the UK and all nations of the Commonwealth.
He also described her death as a colossal loss to the world, noting that Liberia too has lost a friend, who paid a historical visit to Monrovia in 1961 during the celebration of Liberia’s independence.
