Pakistan hails Lanka’s role in UN Peace Keeping Missions

The Government of Pakistan through its High Commission has presented 15 computers and printers to newly set up Peace Keeping Training Centre of Sri Lankan Army, a release issued by the Pakistan High Commission said yesterday

High Commissioner of Pakistan Maj. Gen. Dr. Shahid Ahmad Hashmat handed over the computers and printers to Sri Lankan Army Commander Lt. Gen. Mahesh Senanayake at a ceremony held at the Army Headquarters on April yesterday.

On the occasion, the High Commissioner appreciated the role of Sri Lankan armed forces in the UN Peace Keeping operations. He said relations between Pakistan and Sri Lanka are time-tested and on mutual trust. He hoped that both countries will continue to make efforts for nurturing new vistas of cooperation in the years ahead.

He underscored that Pakistan has been the most significant and consistent contributor to the UN Peacekeeping around the world with the participation of over 150,000 troops since 1960. Pakistani peacekeepers have left no stone unturned in the noble cause of helping humanity, building peace and bringing stability across the regions under the banner of United Nations, he said.

Sri Lankan Army Commander Lt. Gen. Mahesh Senanayake expressed the gratitude over the assistance and said that it will help further improving the IT facilities at the Peace Keeping Training Centre.
