first_imgThe Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) through the Government of the People’s Republic of China has provided US$3.3M as the country’s support to the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL).The money is provided by the PLA as support to the AFL to purchase additional logistics and other equipment that would enhance the AFL’s contribution to the country’s social and economic security.The provision of the grant, according to Chinese Ambassador to Liberia, Zhang Yue, became necessary now that the Engineering Company of the AFL has become a well-trained and well-equipped contingent, having made a significant contribution to the fight against the deadly Ebola epidemic and the development of the Liberian economy.Ambassador Yue signed on behalf of the Government of the People’s Republic of China, while the Deputy Minister of National Defense, Joseph Johnson, who proxied for the Minister National Defense, Brownie J. Samukai, Jr., signed on behalf of the Ministry.Mr. Johnson said China’s provision of military assistance to Liberia was a meaningful gift from the Chinese people to the AFL during the current fight against the Ebola virus disease (EVD).In the past decade, the Chinese Diplomat said, China has attached great importance to the grave security concern by the Liberian Government and people.However, he disclosed that in recent years, with the development of bilateral relations, the exchanges and cooperation between the People’s Liberation Army of China and the AFL have been gradually deepened.“Ever since 2004, through mutual military exchanges and cooperation, the MOD of China provided US$3.3M worth of military assistance and 201 training slots.”Also, in 2014, the Chinese Government provided the Liberian side with engineering equipment gratis to the value of US$4 million, and further sent an Engineering expert team to Liberia to train the Engineering personnel of the AFL for six months.In the words of the Chinese Envoy, China appreciates the achievements made by the Liberian Government to develop the national economy, speed up infrastructure construction and bring benefits to the Liberian people.Yesterday’s signing ceremony coincided with the conferral of “Distinguished Service Medal” on the outgoing Defense Attaché assigned at the Chinese Embassy near Monrovia, Senior Colonel Zhao Xizhang.As Defense Attaché in Liberia, Senior Colonel Zhao exhibited outstanding ability that led to a number of support initiatives to the AFL, leading to an increase in the number of training opportunities to personnel of the AFL, and the central administration of the MOD.He was the one who succeeded in securing about US$4 million worth of engineering equipment, spare parts and training for the Engineering Company of the AFL.At the peak of the Ebola crisis, Senior Colonel Zhao played an exemplary role in his Government dispatching to Liberia, in a speedy manner, significant consignments of anti-Ebola related medical supplies.  He was also instrumental in assisting his government to mobilize the Chinese military medical team to come to Liberia.  The team has constructed and is operating a modern Ebola treatment unit (ETU) in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgSOUTH EL MONTE – Spread across 1,500 acres and surrounded by freeways and urban centers is a recreational “jewel” where residents can play tennis or fish, view endangered species of birds or tend their own private garden plots. There is a trap and skeet range, a soccer tournament complex, areas for model airplane and boat hobbyists, an archery range and more. The Whittier Narrows Recreation Area, first opened in 1957, is an urban oasis, an easy-to-reach getaway option for about 40,000 visitors this Memorial Day weekend. “It’s a real jewel right in the heart of all these cities,” said Mika Yamamoto, AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2recreation area superintendent. Bisected by the Pomona (60) Freeway and bordering Montebello, Pico Rivera, South El Monte and Whittier, the recreation area contains a 427-acre nature center and wildlife preserve, where four lakes and a pond provide habitats for birds, frogs and fish. Many endangered species of birds, like the least Bell’s vireo and the Loggerhead Shrike, flit through the willows and coastal live oak. Rabbits and squirrels run across trails. Native plants abound. “We see ourselves as stewards for the environment,” Yamamoto said. “With all the urban development, there is not much protected land left.” The area serves as a stress-release valve for harried urbanites like Jose Rodriguez, who enjoys getting lost along the miles-long hiking and running trails. Separate bike paths also wind through the park’s tall pines and picnic tables. “There’s no space where I live,” said Rodriguez of East Los Angeles. “I run here in the morning, six to seven miles, and come back with my boys in the afternoon to ride.” A favorite among local fishermen like David Issac of El Monte is Legg Lake, which is stocked with trout, bluegill, catfish and bass. “It’s great I can come here, catch a trout or catfish and take them home to cook up,” he said, casting his line. County officials are now working on designs for a new fishing pier on the south end of the lake. Another new addition is a 3-acre community garden that opened this month on a former parking lot at Whittier Narrows, which is leased by county from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Financed by Supervisor Gloria Molina, it offers 40 to 50 plots. There also are raised beds for disabled gardeners. People can rent plots for $20 a piece for a year. For Mike Guerena of La Puente, Whittier Narrows is one of the few places where he can play disc golf – a golf hybrid in which the ball is replaced by a Frisbee – on the park’s 18-hole regulation disc golf course. “There are not a lot of places that offer disc golf, so it’s great to have this near my house,” he said. debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
