MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The British Embassy near Monrovia has clarified that the UK government has not made any recent changes to the safety and security section of its travel advisory for Liberia, contrary to recent media reports.

But a statement issued by the British Embassy this week disclosed that the last change to its travel alert section was done in November, last year, something it says is consistent with the UK Government advice on other countries.

The Liberian News Agency quoting the statement further clarified that the current advice is not linked to the planned protest on June 7 .The Embassy says its travel advice remains constantly under review and reflects the UK’s assessment of the general threat level in the region.

Meanwhile, British Ambassador, David Belgrove, has expressed his government’s commitment to help Liberia in the areas of media and human resource development, and information exchange.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Ambassador Belgrove made the assertion recently when he visited the Minister of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism in Monrovia.

In remarks, Minister Eugene Nagbe thanked the British Ambassador for the visit and expressed the Liberian government’s gratitude for the continued assistance from the government and people of Great Britain.
