Senator Jallah Wants Defense Capability Upped

By Winnie T. Dixon, Intern

MONROVIA, July 3 (LINA) -The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Good Governance and Reconciliation, Armah Jallah, has called for an increase in the defense capability of Liberia.

Jallah, who is also Chairman on Peace and Internal Affairs, said although it would be “at a high cost,” the security growth of Liberia would deter uprisings and maintain peace as the United Nations draws down its forces.

He told the Liberia News Agency Tuesday that he was “very thrilled and excited about the level of distinction, sacrifice and dedication" demonstrated by the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) during its year-long peacekeeping mission in Mali.

The Senator said with the “successful end” of the peacekeeping of the first batch of AFL soldiers in Mali, he believes that the second contingent, which departed the country recently for Mali, will improve on the “good and patriotic examples” of their predecessors.

Jallah has, meanwhile, stressed the need for all Liberians to support government’s effort in rebuilding a professional, vibrant and civil-based national army.

He said such support would demonstrate the country’s readiness to once again assume the peacekeeping role it undertook on the African continent many decades ago.

It can be recalled that in June of this year, a platoon of AFL soldiers departed the country for Mali in continuation of Liberia’s peacekeeping mission in that West African country.
