UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has thanked India for its strong and sustained support to peacekeeping.

Mr Guterres was addressing a tea reception hosted by India at the world body’s headquarters in New York yesterday on the occasion of the International Day of Peacekeeping. He honoured the memory of the 163 Indian peacekeepers who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty.

He also referred to the 125-strong women peacekeepers of the Indian Formed Police Unit deployed with the UN mission in Liberia, the first ever such contingent, calling them an inspiration to all.
