India bats for women's full role in UN peacekeeping mission

Aug 29, 2020 13:19 IST

India's Permanent Mission to the United Nations has co-sponsored a Security Council resolution that calls for "full, effective and meaningful participation" of women personnel in peacekeeping operations. On Friday the mission said in a tweet, "India is proud to co-sponsor" the resolution which was put forth by Indonesia. ANI has reported that the resolution has passed by consensus but the results will be announced later. India has a long tradition of deploying women peacekeepers. As early as 1960, India sent women in the Armed Forces Medical Services to serve in the UN Peacekeeping Mission in the Republic of Congo.
