‘Liberia Committed To Safeguard Its Peace, Security’ - Envoy Brown
By Prince S. Nagbe

MONROVIA, August 26 (LINA) – Liberia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Lewis G. Brown, has reassured the Security Council of Liberia’s commitment to take all necessary measures to safeguard its peace, security and stability.

“We are aware of the invaluable linkages we share, in this regard, with our sub-region, and will therefore continue to act to ensure the security and stability of our neighbors. These responsibilities we embrace with unrelenting dedication,” Brown stressed.

The Liberian diplomat made the commitment when he delivered a statement at the
UN Security Council briefing on the 32nd Progress Report of UN Secretary General on the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) in New York on Thursday.

He said although the estimated growth of Liberia’s economy has been largely weakened by the Ebola outbreak and the sharp decline in the prices of its main exports, the government has continued to provide support to the relevant security institutions to ensure continued peace and security in the country.

Brown disclosed that among other security measures, the Liberia National Police and the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization continue to recruit, train and deploy into many parts of the country.

He noted that the government is also reforming the judicial system in an effort to improve access and public confidence, especially in the rural parts of the country.

Brown noted that as Liberia progresses in its rebuilding efforts, “grateful, as always, for the support of its partners,” the resilience of the government and its people are indispensable to continue along its decided path of consolidating the peace it now enjoys.

He said the Liberian Government appreciates the continued engagements of the Council and the international community and remains committed to the statement of mutual commitments on peace-building in Liberia and calls for their continued support for its implementation.
