(mylbsonline.com/Liberia)-The Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) has expressed delight over the capability of the AFL to deliver up to expectation in Mali.

President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf said: “The Liberian contingent has the requisite credentials and capacity to help other countries restore peace and democracy to Mali.”

The AFL Commander-In-Chief also described the sending of Liberian soldiers to Mali as a payback for peace-keeping services other friendly nations rendered Liberia over the years.

The Liberian Leader also described the AFL contingent to Mali as proud sons of Liberia and urged them to remain ethical in the discharge of their peace-keeping duties.

Command-In-Chief Johnson-Sirleaf made the statement Thursday, June 20, 2013 at the Roberts International Airport in Margibi County during the soldiers’ departure to Mali.

This is the first time, in 53 years, that Liberia is participating in peace-keeping operations.

Liberia’s peace-keeping engagement was in 1960 in the Democratic Republic of Congo during the Central African nation’s civil crisis.
