Liberia – Conclusion of the UN mission (March 30)

France welcomes the conclusion of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), whose mandate ended on March 30, 2018.

This demonstrates that the mandate entrusted to it has been completed. This is a source of pride and satisfaction for the United Nations as a whole.

UNMIL, which was established in 2003 by UNSCR 1509 in order to ensure compliance with the ceasefire, has made a decisive contribution to Liberia’s stabilization.

As such, it is a successful example of UN peacekeeping operations, to which France lends its support.

France pays tribute to the memory of the two hundred peacekeepers who lost their lives in Liberia.
