Treaty Room
Washington, DC
June 23, 2011

SECRETARY CLINTON: Well, it is, as always, a great personal pleasure for me to welcome the president of Liberia. Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has provided not only very productive, positive leadership for her own country but has been a leader in Africa and beyond on a range of issues. And I’m looking forward to our conversation today on the agenda between us bilaterally and how we can work together regionally and globally.

PRESIDENT SIRLEAF: I’m glad to be here once again, Secretary Clinton, to express to you and through you to the government and people of the United States our appreciation for the support Liberia has received, to say to you that we’ve made progress and that we’re now moving ahead in our program of democracy in this particular year, and we want you to know that we are determined that Liberia will become America and the world’s post-conflict success story. We are well on the way toward achieving that objective.

SECRETARY CLINTON: Thank you so much, President.
