No External Security Threats Against Liberia - Senator Zargo
By Calvin Brooks, LINA

MONROVIA, February 10 (LINA) - Lofa County Senator Stephen Zargo has observed that Liberia is not under any security threat from neighboring countries.

He is therefore urging the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) to focus on the agriculture sector to help make Liberia self-sufficient in food.

Senator Zargo stated that the AFL’s agriculture battalion should be reactivated so that it can get involved in agricultural programs that will make soldiers contribute towards the rebuilding of post-war Liberia.

The Lofa County lawmaker made the observation Tuesday at a one –day symposium as part of activities marking the Armed Forces of Liberia 59th Anniversary held at the Monrovia City Hall.

He noted that food security is crucial in ensuring peace and stability in any society, stating that the involvement of the AFL in agriculture will go a long way in ensuring that peace is maintained and sustained in Liberia.

He stressed the need for security agencies to relate to ex-generals in order to strengthen internal security cooperation, noting that their expertise will help improve the country’s security sector.

Senator Zargo assured that the Senate will support agriculture programs of the AFL, noting that “food is security.”
