The United Nations International Day of Peace Forces was established 11 years ago, in honor of soldiers who served in UN peacekeeping missions and lost their lives serving. May 29th was chosen as the day when the first mission was sent to Palestine.
His Highness Prince Academician Prof. Dr. Bajram Haliti emphasized that the commemoration of that day was introduced in memory of the UN peacekeepers that lost their lives during the mission and to pay respect for all those who served and are still serving in UN peacekeeping operations with a high level of professionalism, commitment and courage.
Since 1948, the UN has had 71 peacekeeping operations in Africa, North America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. More than a million people were part of the peacekeeping operations, far more than the total number of people who worked for the UN in other actions.
Since the founding of the first UN peacekeeping mission in 1948, more than 3,100 soldiers, police, and civilians have lost their lives in the service. More than 80,000 troops, 12,500 police officers, and 17,000 civilians served in 15 UN peacekeeping missions on four continents.
Today, about 125,000 people in 16 peacekeeping missions around the world are involved in some of the most challenging and difficult missions and locations, with increasingly elaborate and complex tasks.
In his message His Highness Prince Academician Prof. Dr. Bajram Haliti points out that the United Nations have always played a key role in finding best solutions to many current events and crisis around the world.
His Highness Prince Academician Prof. Dr. Bajram Haliti emphasized: “I firmly believe that the exceptional cooperation between the NGO sector and the United Nations will continue as long as we are honoring the purpose and principles of the UN Charter. He also concluded that the creators of the United Nations and the Charter have distinctly stated that the most important task is “Maintaining international peace and security by peaceful means.” and that the UN will be “ready to take collective measures to prevent and eliminate threats to peace and to suppress acts of attack or other violations and disruption of peace.” (Article 1 of the Charter).
The establishment of the O UN represents important progress in the process of institutionalizing international peace and security.
