Pakistan Donates Asphalt Plant To Liberia

The Government of Pakistan, through the Pakistan Repair and Maintenance (PakRAM) contingent of UNMIL, donated an asphalt plant to the Government of Liberia at a ceremony yesterday at Camp Scheffline, on the outskirts of Monrovia. The facility was received by Liberia’s Deputy Minister of Defence, Saint Jerome Larbelee, from PakRAM Commanding Officer, Lt.-Col. Mohammad Rafiq.

“This ceremony marks the beginning of a new era of Pakistani-Liberia brotherly relations. We pray that this plant proves to be extremely beneficial in the realization of Liberia’s prosperity,” said Lt.-Col. Rafiq as he formally handed over the plant.

PakRAM is leaving Liberia as part of UNMIL’s drawdown. The Government of Liberia is currently implementing a transition plan that will see national institutions assuming full responsibility for security across the country by 30 June 2016.
