5th October, Mzuzu, Malawi.
Liberland Secretary of State, Dr. Tariq Abbasi, reports that the marathon of negotiations he initiated more than a year ago has been a success.
Today, a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between Malawi and Liberland through a special arm of the Liberland Aid Foundation. This Memorandum signifies the recognition of our country as a valid and worthy diplomatic and economic partner for the African State.
The content of the Memorandum is comprehensive, promising tighter economic relations between the countries, peaceful resolutions of disputes should any occur between the parties, and a joint effort to attain mutually agreed upon development goals.
The Ministry of Agriculture of Malawi has ratified the Memorandum. The reason is simple: Both Liberland and Malawi wish to start their cooperation through activities in this sector. Malawi has the potential to become one of the breadbaskets of Africa and, perhaps, in time, of the entire world.
Given the current complicated situation regarding supply lines caused by the Covid crisis and the conflict in Ukraine, the time has come for Africa to step up to the international stage. The Ministry of Agriculture of Malawi recognizes this opportunity, and so does Liberland.
To give practical effect to the stipulations in the Memorandum, Dr. Abbasi has also founded the Liberland Trade Mission and Aid Foundation, a new entity in Malawi, which will cooperate with the government of Malawi to fulfill the Memorandum’s purposes.
We are happy to see this effort come to fruition and hope for a fruitful partnership between Liberland and Malawi.
