UN mis­sion in Liberia ends

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS -

The Deputy Spe­cial Rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Sec­re­tary Gen­eral for the United Na­tions Mis­sion in Liberia, also known as UNMIL, says the mis­sion has done a good job in bring­ing se­cu­rity to the West African na­tion af­ter a pe­riod of un­rest and now it is time for Liberia to be re­spon­si­ble for its own se­cu­rity.

In 2003, the U.N. Se­cu­rity Coun­cil passed res­o­lu­tion 1509 to have UNMIL, among other re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, pro­tect civil­ians, of­fer help to the peo­ple of Liberia, and as­sist the Liberian gov­ern­ment in de­vel­op­ing and im­ple­ment­ing na­tional se­cu­rity re­form.
