 Acting Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) of the United Nations Aeneas C. Chuma has hailed the contribution of Bangladesh to the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).

He also described Bangladesh as a strong, reliable, and dedicated partner in Liberia’s security, development, and stability, as well as that of the entire region, said an ISPR release.

Speaking at a ceremony in the central city of Gbarnga recently at which he presented UN Peacekeeping Medals to 1,375 Bangladeshi soldiers serving in the Liberian frontier counties of Nimba and Bong, Chuma commended the critical role the Bangladeshi peacekeepers had played in maintaining peace and stability along the borders.

“Your relentless efforts along the porous borders have helped ease and minimise refugee and cross-border challenges,” the acting UN envoy told the Bangladeshi peacekeepers, singling out their regular cross-border liaison patrols with the Guinean authorities, and with UNOCI, the UN mission in Cote d’Ivoire.

The acting SRSG expressed deep appreciation to the Bangladeshi engineering battalion for the construction, repair and maintenance of airfields, helipads and roads, making them accessible for UNMIL operations, and most importantly for the Liberian people.

He also praised the Bangladeshi engineers for the series of training programmes they had held to build the professional capacity of the Gbarnga-based engineering battalion of the Armed Forces of Liberia.

The Bangladeshi peacekeepers were also thanked for the important development opportunities they had provided to young Liberians, including computer/IT training, tailoring skills, generator repair and maintenance.

Furthermore, Chuma commended the peacekeepers for providing vital medical treatment to over 5,000 Liberians through their medical outreach programmes. — UNB
