Protecting civilians ‘central mission’ for UN peacekeepers


They’re doing a work that is extremely difficult and and yet indispensable for the population. They’re protecting and they’re serving and they do it at immense risk. Many of our peacekeepers have paid the highest price for that. We’ve had 90 fatalities last year as a result of our peacekeepers being so engaged. We will continue to do everything we can to help the communities, the civilian population, whom we are there to to help and to serve. Some time it’s extremely difficult and sometimes we don’t have enough resources to do everything we would like to do, but they can rest assure that our commitment, our determination is very strong, even when we’re facing the kind of challenges that makes it difficult and and sometime very very challenging to help the population. The protection of civilian protection of the communities in the areas where we are deployed is really our central mission. We will never forget that.
