STORYLINE:

The Nigerian and Ukrainian peacekeeping contingents have left Liberia, as the mandate of the United Nations Mission in Liberia approaches its conclusion.

After almost 15 years of operations, UNMIL has successfully completed its mandate, which encompassed civilian protection, supporting reform of rule of law and justice institutions, the protection and promotion of human rights, and the promotion of sustainable peace through a public information radio broadcast run by the peacekeeping mission.

The United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) took over peacekeeping operations from the ECOWAS vanguard force, ECOWAS Mission in Liberia (ECOMIL), on 1 October 2003. In 2005, UNMIL troop’s strength stood at 14,824 personnel from 49 troop contributing countries.

UNMIL started a draw down plan in August 2007.
Starting 31 March, UNMIL will be replaced by a UN country team in Liberia.
