Peace-keeping Force Formed for Sudan Mission

China has established a force to carry out peace-keeping mission in Sudan, at the request of the UN, according to the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Jinan Area Command.


A ceremony was held in the city of Laiyang, east China's Shandong Province, Thursday to announce the formation of the force that comprises a 275-member engineering corps, a 100-member transport unit and a 60-member medical team.


The peace-keeping force will be held accountable mainly for constructing and repairing roads, airports, bridges, and waterworks and power-supply facilities, and doing medical work.


On March 24, the UN Security Council passed the Resolution No. 1590, to set up a peace-keeping force to help resume normal order in southern Sudan and, on March 29, China was requested to dispatch its peace-keeping troops by the UN peace-keeping agencies.


The first batch of peace-keepers, numbering 165, are expected to leave for Sudan in October to carry out the peace-keeping mission.
