UN rotation of UN peacekeeping contingent announced


UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres spoke yesterday at a meeting on the COVID-19 pandemic. There he stated that the rotation of the peacekeepers would not be temporarily made.


This was reported by the press service of the United Nations.

According to the UN Secretary General, the suspension of the rotation of peacekeeping contingents will last until the end of the second quarter of this year.

Antoniu Guterres informed those present at the meeting that he transmitted this information to representatives of states providing military and police forces for the implementation of UN peacekeeping missions. He warned them that by the end of June, none of the peacekeepers, with some exceptions, would be sent to missions, deployed, or returned from there.

These measures are taken to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection. According to the World Health Organization, 1,6 million people on Earth are currently infected with COVID-19. 95,6 thousand deaths are registered in the world. The spread of this viral disease began in the Chinese city of Wuhan last December.

António Guterres has led the United Nations since 2017. This month he turns 70 years old.

    I think it’s right, if there are infected people among peacekeepers, then they need to be isolated and treated on the spot and not infected in the whole world. Well and of course there is nothing healthy to stick in the hell. And how it turns out, time will tell.

      All right
      However, the question is: how long? For the mental burnout in hot spots of peacekeepers with weapons and sanitation in their hands still by the biological nature of man has not been canceled.

      At the expense of treating Sanya, you got excited laughing Usually, the missions are in the ass itself (well, maybe Cyprus, between the Turks and Greeks civilization and Galana) well, where in Africa to treat? Ours in Transnistria and Ossetia is still calmer.

        Ours in Transnistria

        There are no UN peacekeepers. There are tripartite arrangements

          Is there a solution? We’ll lower the undercover. Are there peacekeepers according to the FACT?

      they must be isolated in place

      ... or dispose of, so as not to suffer. It would not have happened that the UN will die before rotation.

    And where did this contingent help when? In Rwanda?
    Anyway, it seems that it's time to dissolve all these pro-American offices - the UN, WHO, IMF, EU ...

      They gave him the opportunity to show the "independence of the UN Secretary General," in a matter that does not affect politics. I’m used to waiting for instructions from the USA, but I didn’t wait here. So it’s “born” already after 4 months, as the virus rushes around the World.

    neither will be deployed to missions, nor deployed, neither return from there.

    Demobilization broke.

    The UN has the right to resolve such issues, so if they decided it was considered necessary. The main thing is that the US Senate should not be called for explanations. Today there is information that the main WHO was called to the US Senate for a report. How do you like this? The United States considers itself entitled to arrange interrogations to the leaders of international organizations.

    And this is more than 100000 people, including humanitarian ones.
    In Africa, the young population, the heat. But in a couple of months, “winter” sets in. Given the weakened immunity due to AIDS and especially tuberculosis. . And the "missionaries" will have a very hard time.
