International Community Issued Joint Statement On Recent Dialogue Meeting

-Held Between GoL And COP
The United Nations (UN), the African Union Liaison Office in Liberia (AU) and the Office of the
Special Representative of the ECOWAS Commission in Liberia (ECOWAS), wish to commend the
Government and people of Liberia, “the Council of Patriots”, and other Stakeholders for the
inclusive dialogue held on 14 May, which coincided with ‘Unification Day’. We welcome the dialogue as an indication of the willingness of all Parties to continue to work to reach amicable and encompassing political agreements.

We wish to emphasize that any prolonged political disagreement in Liberia will undermine peace, as well as worsen the prospects for improved socio-economic development.

We therefore reiterate the need for inclusive, transparent and continued dialogue on the planned 7 June protest, without denying Article 17 of the Liberian Constitution, which guarantees the right of all

Liberians to lawful, peaceful and orderly assembly and association. The United Nations (UN), the African Union Liaison Office in Liberia (AU) and the Office of the

Special Representative of the ECOWAS Commission in Liberia (ECOWAS) wish to renew our continued support to this process and our firm commitment to supporting the people and Government of Liberia in all their endeavours for a peaceful, stable and prosperous country.
