UN honours 413 Chinese peacekeepers to Mali with Peace Medal



All 413 members of the eighth Chinese peacekeeping force to Mali have awarded the United Nations Peace Medal of Honour, in recognition of their outstanding contributions to peacekeeping operations.

Since its deployment in July 2020, the Chinese peacekeeping force has accomplished a series of missions assigned by the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilisation Mission in Mali, including armed patrols, constructions, and support.

The eighth Chinese peacekeeping force to Mali consists of a guard detachment, an engineer detachment, and a detachment.

The medal ceremony held at the camps of the three detachments separately due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic. (Xinhua/NAN)
