MONROVIA, LIBERIA-Liberia’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Dee-Maxwell Saah Kemayah, says the welfare of the military, especially Liberian peacekeepers serving with the United Nations in Mali, is a priority of Liberia’s Permanent Mission to the World Body.

Receiving the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of Liberia, Major-General Prince Johnson, Ambassador Kemayah assured the AFL that he would engage his colleagues to ensure Liberian Peacekeepers are well catered for in Mali.

The Chief of Staff was in New York to follow-up on negotiations of a Memorandum of Understanding between Liberia and the UN about Liberia’s involvement with peacekeeping operations in Mali.

According to a dispatch from Liberia's Permanent Mission on October 21,2018,, the MOU will detail the number and type of personnel, equipment, and services that Liberia provides as a peacekeeping contributor.

The dispatch further states that as a standard UN procedure,  every troop-contributing country, including Liberia, funds the deployment and upkeep of its soldiers; including the provision of major equipment and services, and gets reimbursed.
 
When completed, the MOU will state how much and how Liberia will be reimbursed for major equipment, maintenance, troop deployment and welfare among others.
