President Joseph Boakai has reassured China of his government’s commitment to the One China Policy. The policy which has not been signed for years now has a green light with the latest assurance from President Boakai.  The policy, he told Executive Mansion reporters, he saw when he was President of the Liberian Senate and made a commitment, noting that since that time, he has not changed his decision in said regard. According to him, the Chinese have been a big partner to Liberia. ” Over the years, the Chinese have done a lot for Liberia in several key areas and we support their policy,” he reassured them. Speaking about the State of the Nation Address (SONA), President Boakai stated that it is his duty to report to his people and he is ready to execute such task at the grounds of the Capitol Building.  The Liberian people, he stressed, will have to know that this is the agenda he has for them and also the Legislature, he pointed out, will have to know where he wants to go. President Boakai at the same time pledged commitment to work with members of the National Legislature in the Supreme interest of the Liberian people.  With the latest renewed commitment by President Boakai on the One China Policy, it is expected that such key instruction will be a priority, including the subsequent fruitful results for the nation and its people.  Human capacity through scholarships and empowerment, infrastructure development in Health, Education, Science and Technology; among others, are tangible impacts the Chinese have done for Liberia and its people as the pending signing of said key document will eventually see more for the country. Meanwhile, Sierra Leone’s Vice President, Mohammed Jalloh, earlier paid a visit to President Boakai. In conversation with Executive Mansion reporters following his brief visit, Vice President Jalloh said he was well received by President Boakai and his entourage as he used the occasion to congratulate Amb. Boakai for his new role to serve the Liberian people as President of the nation. Additionally, he stated that his visit was also a follow- up to a previous visit made by   President Julius Maada Bio.
