The Foreign Minister then held a meeting with the diplomats during which pertinent matters affecting the Mission and the operations of the staff were discussed. The Minister said he arrived two days earlier to the meetings to be able to visit the mission to introduce himself formally since his appointment few months ago and not only meet most of the staff for the first time but listen to their views about the work of the Mission. He assured the diplomats of his commitment and willingness to improve their conditions of operations. The minister acquainted the staff about new measures soon to be implemented by government to boost the Sierra Leone diplomatic service.
