"Liberia expresses its regret over the absence of Morocco from TICAD-8. We are surprised by the imposed presence of a delegation (Editor's note: Polisario) in violation of TICAD procedures," said Liberian Foreign Minister Dee-Maxwell Saah Kemayah at the opening of the conference.
In this sense, he called for compliance with the procedures and rules of invitation established under this Summit.
He further emphasized the importance of respecting the rules and procedures relating to the invitation of persons and delegations, established jointly with Japan, calling to comply with the decisions of the African Union on the format of participation in partnership meetings.
This position supports those taken by other African states that have denounced the unilateral invitation by Tunisia of the separatist entity against the advice of Japan and in violation of the preparation process and the established rules.
