(LINA) – Justice Minister Frederick Cherue has disclosed that the government is taking over security in areas where the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) no longer operates.

He made the disclosure during a press conference at the end of a three-day visit by a delegation of the United Nations Peace Building Commission (PBC) to Liberia at the weekend.

Minister Cherue said the PBC visited to explore the sub-regional peace-building priorities and opportunities on the road to recovery after the Ebola outbreak.

He expressed gratitude on behalf of the government and people of Liberia to the commission for its support during and after the Ebola outbreak.

He stressed the need for the international community to continue to support the security sector of Liberia to enhance the rule of law through moral, equipment and financial support to ensure that Liberia remains stable.

Minister Cherue told reporters that the delegation held talks with several government officials and institutions relative to maintaining peace to foster the growth and development in Liberia.
