UNITED NATIONS Anthony Rendon Jersey , Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign MinisterWang Yi on Wednesday told a Security Council high-level meeting onUN peacekeeping that China has been a staunch supporter of UN peaceoperations.


Twenty-seven years have passed ever since China began itsparticipation in the United Nations peacekeeping operations in1990, when Beijing sent five military observers to the Middle East.Today, China has become the second-largest country to share UNpeacekeeping costs and has some 2,500 peacekeepers serving in nineUN peacekeeping operations.

"As the second largest financial contributor, China'scontribution to peacekeeping is extremely important," Jean-PierreLacroix Wholesale Washington Nationals Jerseys , UN under-secretary-general for peacekeeping operations,told Xinhua.

"China is a very important troop contributor as well with about2,500 peacekeepers deployed in a number of countries as in theDemocratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and Mali," said Lacroix,who is the UN chief commanding some 111 Wholesale Nationals Jerseys ,000 peacekeepers from morethan 120 countries, serving in 15 peacekeeping operations.

UN peacekeeping is intended to help countries torn by conflictto create the conditions for lasting peace.

The UN Charter gives the Security Council the power andresponsibility to take collective action to maintain internationalpeace and security.Every UN member state is legally obligated topay their respective share for peacekeeping.

Peacekeeping expenses are based on a formula taking into accountthe economic wealth of member states among other things. PermanentSecurity Council members are required to pay a larger share, whileall states are free to contribute additional funding, equipment, orother services to missions they choose.

In 2017, the UN agreed to reduce the peacekeeping budget by 600million U.S. dollars after the United States initially proposed alarger cut of approximately 900 million dollars.

The budget might change with each passing year. China nowcontributes 10.29 percent Cheap Washington Nationals Jerseys , next to the 28.57 percent by the UnitedStates which has 74 peacekeepers. In the meanwhile, Chinacontributes more troops to UN peacekeeping missions than any otherpermanent member of the Security Council.

The past years saw even more active Chinese participation in theUN peacekeeping operations, with tremendous increases in itstroops.

In late 2013, China, for the first time, dispatched a securityforce of 170 soldiers to the UN Multidimensional IntegratedStabilization Mission in Mali.

China also sent support detachments Cheap Nationals Jerseys , such as engineers,transportation and medical corps, to UN peacekeepingoperations.


China dispatches "high-value, hard-to-source enabler troops" andhas recently begun to provide combat troops, marking a significantchange in its deployment profile, according to related reports.

"What is remarkable is that the contributions of China are veryhigh- quality Nationals Sean Doolittle Jersey ," said Lacroix, recalling his visit to Juba of SouthSudan with his predecessor Herve Ladsous, where he saw himselfChina's contributions there.

"I was deeply impressed by the quality of the Chinesecontingent, qualified people and quality equipment -- this is veryimportant," he added.

Ladsous, UN under-secretary-general for peacekeeping operationsfrom 2011 to 2017 Nationals Joe Blanton Jersey , and Atul Khare, the current UNunder-secretary-general for the United Nations Department of FieldSupport, truly appreciated Chinese peacekeepers for their "greatprofessionalism, dedication and generosity."

They said the well-equipped Chinese peacekeeping troops are areliable force in UN peacekeeping operations and they look forwardto a greater role played by China in UN peacekeeping missions.

"China now has become over recent years a very importantcontributor," Ladsous told Xinhua. "Chinese units are verywell-equipped and are well-trained."

"Chinese peacekeepers have never ever had any misconduct ofdiscipline," Khare said against a backdrop of alleged sexual abusecommitted in Africa by peacekeepers from other countries.


The year 2015 was a landmark of China's rise as a globalsecurity provider. Not only did President Xi Jinping commit 8 Nationals Gio Gonzalez Jersey ,000troops to the UN peacekeeping standby force -- one fifth of the40,000 total troops committed by 50 nations -- China also pledged100 million dollars to the African Union standby force and 1billion dollars to establish the UN Peace and Development TrustFund.

The UN extremely appreciates "the fact that China is committedto the PCRS or the Peacekeeping Capability Readiness System," saidLacroix.

"We look forward that China will bring those contributions to alevel of readiness that will enable us, if needed, to rapidlydeploy Chinese units wherever they are needed," he said.

"This is a very much appreciated effort Nationals Stephen Strasburg Jersey ," said the UNpeacekeeping chief official.

"I think that there is another area that China's role is andwill be very important. It's the area of helping the other actualtroop contributor countries to improve the level (of PeacekeepingCapability Readiness System)," Lacroix added.


On May 24, at a corner of the north lawn at the UN headquarters,peacekeepers and diplomats led by UN Secretary-General AntonioGuterres mourned in silence for fallen peacekeepers who lost theirlives while serving under the UN flag.

"Today we remember not only our uniformed personnel but civilianpeacekeepers who have fallen -- international civil servants,national staff members, and UN Volunteers Nationals Matt Wieters Jersey ," said Guterres at awreath-laying ceremony held there.

Among the fallen peacekeepers, 13 are from China.
