China supports UN efforts to refine Security Council mandates on peacekeeping: white paper
China supports the UN efforts to refine Security Council mandates on peacekeeping, says a white paper released by the State Council Information Office Friday.
The Security Council mandates are the basis and guidelines for UN peacekeeping missions, and a decisive factor in the legitimacy and effectiveness of the UN peacekeeping operations, says the white paper titled "China's Armed Forces: 30 Years of UN Peacekeeping Operations."
It is necessary to take into account various factors such as national conditions and the actual needs of host nations, and the capability of the troop-contributing countries when developing and renewing peacekeeping mandates, it says, adding that it is also important to reset the priorities and main lines of action at each phase in accordance with changing needs.
