In continuation of the PMDC manifesto, the party believes that a strong foreign policy and good international relations would definitely improve the country’s image worldwide.
As globalization brings the world’s diverse peoples and cultures ever closer; as advances in science, information technology and the internet increase communication between nations; as international trade and cooperation facilitate enhanced cross-continental contacts; and as man made or natural disasters stir the human heart making people reach out to each other in times of crises, PMDC takes cognizance of the fact that no nation can afford to live in isolation.
PMDC recognizes and appreciates the help given to us Sierra Leoneans by the international community when we were in dire need.
The efforts of the international community towards the restoration of peace and democracy are highly commendable.
A PMDC government will embrace the articles and principles enshrined in the Geneva and Vienna Conventions on Diplomatic Practice and Consular Relations; adhere to the protocols and articles of regional associations and international organizations such as the United Nations, African Union, Commonwealth, ECOWAS, Mano River Union and all global alliances which are committed to the pursuit of liberty and peaceful co-existence.
Commit to the fight against global terrorism in order to ensure a more peaceful and stable world.
Fully endorses an enhanced and more dynamic and robust role for the UN in the maintenance of international peace and order and the resolution of conflicts wherever they occur.
Support the UN’s preventive measures in addressing conflicts rather than embarking on crisis management. Recognise the important role the Mano River Union (MRU) could play towards restoring the cordial relationship enjoyed by the three nations of Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.
Commit to an invigorated MRU that would play its rightful role in ensuring the peace and stability in the Mano River Union basin.
Pursue vigorous multi as well as bi-lateral agreements to promote greater international cooperation in the areas of economic development, trade, the war against drugs, human trafficking etc.
Commit to initiating robust diplomatic efforts to raise our national stature in the international forum and expand our bi-lateral relationships with other nations in furtherance of mutually agreed goals and programmes.
Ensure that compatriots in the Diaspora fully participate in national development. Such participation will extend to making them eligible to vote and be voted for at national elections.
Reciprocally, they will be expected to pay their taxes to meet their civic responsibility.
Review the law of the land with a view to recognizing dual citizenship for Sierra Leoneans in the Diaspora.
