MONROVIA, February 11 (LINA) – Foreign Minister Marjon Kamara has observed that today’s Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) has evolved to become « the most educated » in Liberian history, with specialized skills in many disciplines.

« Our men and women in uniform reflect high quality and standards, integrity, loyalty and commitment not to any particular ethnic group but to the nation, » she noted.

The new Liberian Foreign Minister made the observation Thursday when she served as keynote speaker at the 59th anniversary celebration of the Armed Forces of Liberia.

Minister Kamara indicated that the soldiers are being trained not only in national defense but also in strategic institution-building and civic responsibilities.

She indicated that she was particularly impressed by the progress that the military has made in integrating women into the army.

« I understand that seven female officers and 73 enlisted women currently serve in the military, and that the Ministry of National Defense desires to reach a goal of 20 percent female enlistment, » she stressed.

Minister Kamara encouraged the Ministry of Defense to attain this target which will contribute to the national objective of gender mainstreaming.

« The National Defense Act of 2008 requires the AFL to provide command, communications, medical, transportation and humanitarian support to civil authority in the event of a natural or man-made disaster, during the outbreak of diseases or epidemics and to also support national law enforcement agencies when requested, » Madam Kamara noted.

According to the new Foreign Minister, true to this mandate, the AFL has built a respectable track record of supporting civil authority.

« The Health Department of the Ministry and the medical command of the armed forces have been providing medical examinations, treatment and HIV/AIDS counseling as part of their outreach to communities, » the foreign minister said.
