As Liberia continues to take steps to consolidate peace following the end of civil war a decade ago, a senior official with the UN Peacebuilding Commission is urging the international community not to forget about the country.

Staffan Tillander, chair of the Liberia configuration of the Peacebuilding Commission, headed a delegation which travelled to the West African country in February.

The Swedish diplomat this week briefed the Security Council on the mission and its consultations with the government and other partners in areas such as national reconciliation.

Dianne Penn sat down with Ambassador Tillander to find out more.
