Liberia, EU Reinforce Political Relations At Fourth Dialogue in Monrovia

The European Union (EU) has expressed confidence in the Liberian Government’s ability to take full responsibility for its own security following the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) drawdown at the end of June 2016. Both parties recognized that peace and security are germane to governance and development and therefore agreed to continue collaboration on justice and security sector reform and on the importance of appropriate resource allocation for the justice and security sector. They also shared views and concerns on the current security situation and further affirmed their willingness to continue dialogue on issues of shared concern, such as counter-terrorism. According to a Foreign Ministry release, these were contained in a joint press release at the end of the 4th EU-Liberia Political Dialogue held at the C. Cecil Dennis, Jr. Auditorium early last week. The Dialogue which focused on the theme: “Conditions for Peace and Economic Growth,” covered a wide range of issues including justice and security sector, human rights, the 2017 Presidential and legislative elections, the Liberian economy, development strategies and investment climate, among others.
