Pakistan reiterates pledge to UN Peacekeeping Operations in conflict zones

Pakistan has reiterated its pledge to the United Nations Peacekeeping Operations in conflict zones around the world.

Speaking in the UN Security Council’s open debate on training and capacity building for United Nations peacekeeping missions, Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi highlighted the need for the UN to undertake political processes along with its peacekeeping efforts to attain durable peace and stability.

She said Pakistan is one of the largest contributors to UN peacekeeping, with over five thousand troops serving in missions in hotspots around the world.

Pakistan, she said, is also host to one of the earliest peacekeeping missions, namely the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP), which monitors the Line of Control (LoC) in the disputed Kashmir region.
