Call to back Liberia


IN SPITE of “remarkable” progress in Liberia since the signing of the comprehens­ive peace agreement in 2003, the presence of challenges that risk a reversal of the gains made, warrant continued internatio­nal support and attention, the UN envoy for the country has cautioned.

“I appeal to all concerned to increase and consolidat­e investment in Liberia and support the country at this crucial time, through its transition to a new government and beyond,” Farid Zarif, the Special Representa­tive of the Secretary-General for Liberia, told the Security Council, pointing to challenges which could hinder peace and reconcilia­tion.
