Samukai Yearns To Enhance Technology In AFL

MONROVIA, August 5 (LINA) - Defense Minister Brownie J. Samukai has vowed to continue to seek opportunities for the technological advancement of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL).

He said providing technological advancement opportunities for the AFL will make the force more responsive to the needs of the Liberian people whom it is sworn to serve and defend.

Minister Samukai noted that the AFL is under obligation to touch the lives of all Liberians through community-based engagements or civil-military operations.

“In our ambition to give a new outlook to the AFL as a ‘Force for Good,” we will seek partnership with our counterparts so that the technological capacity, particularly of our engineers and Explosive Ordinance Device (EOD) Unit can be boosted,” he stressed.

According to a press release, Minister Samukai made the vow Thursday when the Israeli Ambassador accredited to Liberia, Ami Mehl, paid a courtesy call on him at his Barclay Training Center office in Monrovia.

The Liberian Defense Minister acknowledged the historical role the Israeli Government and people have played over the years in the development of the Liberian defense sector.

Reflecting on global security concerns, Minister Samukai intimated that the Liberian Defense Sector remains keen about strengthening relations with its regional and global counterparts in the collective spirit aimed at thwarting security threats.

In remarks, Ambassador Mehl lauded Minister Samukai and the AFL for the professional growth of the force over the years which, according to him, is a product of transformational leadership.

Ambassador Mehl expressed his country’s preparedness to work with Liberia within the broad spectrum of collaboration, adding, “There is open field of cooperation from Israel,” the release said.
