    Pakistan one of the largest contributors to the UN peacekeeping force, was involved with the United Nation's peacekeeping mission in Somalia.

    I present some pictures of our soldiers in a foreign land, Africa.

    "The first deployment of UN peacekeepers from Pakistan arrive in Kachele, in the north eastern region of Ituri, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, 11 October 2003. . Pakistan 25 May 2007 denied "preposterous" allegations that its troops deployed with the UN in the Democratic Republic of Congo had traded gold and weapons with militia groups."





    We all know about our troops fighting the Taliban and serving Pakistan, but let's never forget all the troops fighting abroad, they are Pakistan's dedication and contribution to World security and peace. :pakistan:

    Bangladesh is largest supplier for troops in UN peacekeeping missions . After that its India and Pakistan i guess amongst others . 1st world countries throw money and 3rd world countries throw lives . Maybe one day when will not be so poor we will not have to sacrifice troops for foreign lands .
