Pakistan is one of the largest contributors to UN peacekeeping, with around 3,000 Peacekeepers currently serving in missions in the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan, Abyei, Central African Republic, Cyprus, Western Sahara and Somalia.

Since 1960, Pakistan has contributed 235,000 troops to UN peacekeeping operations in 48 United Nations Missions in 29 Countries including almost all continents of the world.

“Pakistan is proud of its long-standing commitment to UN peacekeeping,” the ISPR said.

It said that our peacekeepers have demonstrated exceptional courage, professionalism and dedication to promoting peace and stability in conflict-ridden regions.

Overall, 181 Pakistani peacekeepers have made the supreme sacrifice in the line of duty.

“On this International Peacekeeping Day, we honour their service and sacrifice for noble cause of global peace,” the ISPR added.

The ISPR further said that Pakistan also remains committed to United Nations Uniform Gender Parity Strategy (UGPS) of United Nations for enhanced representation of women in uniform, Secretary-General’s Action for peace (A4P) initiative which seeks to improve the effectiveness of UN peacekeeping operations by enhancing their capacity, coherence and responsiveness.

Additionally, Pakistan also supports initiatives aimed at improving the safety and security of UN peacekeepers, particularly those serving in high-risk environments, it added.
