The White House on Friday congratulated Liberia on its recent presidential run-off election, calling the nation's first democratic transition in more than 70 years "a major milestone."

"This is Liberia’s first peaceful transfer of power from one democratically elected head of state to another in decades, and represents a major milestone for Liberia’s democracy," the White House said in a statement, referring to President-elect George Weah's victory.
