Chinese Envoy Names Items Donated To LNP

MONROVIA, October 12 (LINA) – Chinese Ambassador Zhang Yue has disclosed the list of China-donated materials and equipment to the Liberia National Police (LNP) in fulfillment of a US$2 million exchange note signed between both countries.  

In the agreement signed by Ambassador Zhang on behalf of the People's Republic of China and Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Elias Shoniyin on behalf of the Liberian Government in Monrovia recently, China agreed to provide US$2 million worth of supplies for use by the LNP.

Making the disclosure in an interview with the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Monrovia on Tuesday, Ambassador Zhang named the equipment as anti-riot suits and helmets, portable roadblocks, anti-riot shields, bullet-proof helmets and ballistic body armors.

Others are tents and folded beds, traffic cones, retro-reflective vests and raincoats, among others. 

The Chinese diplomat hoped the donation will enhance the effectiveness of the LNP as well as boost the nation’s security sector, especially at a time when the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) has turned over security to the Liberian Government.

He also indicated that coupled with the supplies, there will be more capacity building for the LNP and other law enforcement actors, stressing that “security is the most fundamental part of every nation’s peace and stability.”

When contacted, Police Inspector General Gregory Coleman lauded China for the supplies and noted that it has proven to be a dependable and strong partner to Liberia and assured that the supplies will be accounted for and used for the intended purpose.

The Police Inspector General also thanked the Government of the People's Republic of China for helping to strengthen Liberia’s peace and security sectors.
