In remarks at the turnover ceremony held at the Barclay Training Center in Monrovia Tuesday, U.S Ambassador Christine Ann Elder recalled the long-standing ties between the two countries.
 

At the same time, Ambassador Elder has disclosed that in order to support the AFL in its upcoming rotation of a contingent to the MINUSMA Peacekeeping Mission in Mali, the U.S is providing as a permanent donation a 10,000 litre water truck, a 50,000 litre/day water purification unit and a mobile kitchen trailer.

She hoped that several of the newly-donated Land Cruiser pickups will also be deployed to Mali.

In February 2016, the Chinese government has donated $3 million worth of equipment to the Armed Forces of Liberia, including 20 trucks, two graders, 10 000 uniforms and 40 tents.

Since 2004, China’s Ministry of Defence has provided Liberia’s Ministry of National Defence with nearly $15 million in military assistance and provided training opportunities for 217 Liberians. 23 Liberian officers and soldiers are to travel to China for training.
