The transcripts of the trial of Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia. More…

Let's go on:

"In conclusion the Government of Liberia recognises that its security and stability are inextricably bound together with those of the brotherly state of Sierra Leone. The government has accordingly been most anxious for durable peace to be restored to the Republic of Sierra Leone. Towards this goal, the following national security policy measures are being pursued:

(1) The containment or limitation of the fighting to Sierra Leone through the non-support of belligerent forces and the stationing of Liberian security forces along the Sierra Leonean border to prevent any spill over of the conflict onto our territory."

Is that right, Mr Taylor?
