Liberia has come a long way in the last thirteen years and is now ready to manage its own security.
That’s according to Farid Zarif, Special Representative to the Secretary General for the UN’s mission in the nation, UNMIL.
The peacekeeping mission was first deployed in 2003 to help the West African nation stabilize and rebuild its institutions after the end of a civil war.
UNMIL will be withdrawing most of its military and police personnel on 30 June, leaving responsibility for maintaining security with the Liberian government.
Mr Zarif has been speaking with Juma Delu about the upcoming transition.
