International Day of UN Peacekeepers
Today, May 29, is the International Day of Peacekeepers. UN Peace-keeping operations are an investment into global peace and security. Civil, military and police peacekeepers make difference in the lives of millions of the most vulnerable every day. They deserve our gratitude and respect for their courage in protecting peace and those who cannot protect themselves. We also remember all who lost their lives performing the duty.
Slovenia has a long history of active participation in the UN Peacekeeping operations and has, among others, had its military and police representatives in UNIFIL, UNFICYP, UNMIK, UNTSO just to name a few.
