The military teams of China and India are part of the United Nations Mission in Sudan (UNMIS), which was created by the UN Security Council through Resolution 1590 on March 24, 2005. The UN Peacekeeping Mission is part of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement between the Sudanese government and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement on January 9, 2005.

It is the responsibility of the UN Peacekeeping Mission in Sudan to implement the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, and it is involved in providing support to the African Union Mission in Sudan, humanitarian assistance, promotion of human rights, and peacekeeping operations.

The UN has designated May 29 as the “International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers” through Resolution 57/129. It was on this day that the first UN peacekeeping mission, the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO), began in Palestine in 1948. Since then, 3,900 military, police, and civilian personnel have laid down their lives while performing peacekeeping duties in various Peacekeeping Missions across the globe.

Since 1948, the UN Peacekeeping Missions have ensured peace in numerous conflict zones across the globe, and more than 2 million personnel have served in various peace missions. Today, 70,000 peacekeepers are serving in 11 missions across global conflict zones.

The Indian Ambassador to the United Nations wrote on X, “India proudly stands as a leading contributor to UN peacekeeping, showcasing our unwavering commitment to global peace and security. On #PeacekeepingDay, we honor the bravery and dedication of our peacekeepers who make the world a safer place.”
