Background: President William Tolbert of Liberia made a brief stopover in Sierra Leons on Wednesday (21 February) on his way home from Gambia.
He was welcomed at the airport by President Siaka Stevens.
In a V.I.P. lounge, President Stevens proposed a toast to President Tolbert and said he hoped for continued friendship between both countries.
In reply, President Tolbert thanked President Stevens for the welcome and said he was most satisfied with the relationship between the two countries. He said the association was solidly laid on a basic structure and erected solidly enough to last though years ahead.
