The United States is a partner with the Government of Liberia in the promotion of democracy, the establishment of good governance, and development of a responsible security sector in Liberia.

Today I met with President Sirleaf to assure her of our continued support and engagement as Liberia progresses towards full economic and political recovery. In this regard, we discussed Liberia’s preparations for national elections in 2011, progress on judicial and police reforms, and efforts to fight against official corruption. The United States looks forward to working with the government and people of Liberia to ensure lasting progress in these areas.
