Pakistan is leading contributor to global peace: ISPR DG

Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General (DG) Major General Asif Ghafoor said on Thursday that Pakistan was one of the leading contributors to global peace since 1960.

The military spokesperson also thanked the United Nations (UN) for acknowledging Pakistan’s peacekeepers. He said that 156 Pakistanis had sacrificed their lives under the UN flag.

Earlier, in a tweet, the United Nations had acknowledged Pakistan’s contribution to peacekeeping. “UN peacekeepers come from different countries, cultures and backgrounds but share a common purpose to protect the most vulnerable,” the UN said on twitter with a photo of Pakistan military’s female doctor serving as peacekeeper.

According to the UN, Pakistani peacekeepers were deployed on seven missions and more than 6000 military and police officers were provided by Pakistan to the UN for peacekeeping.
