The team will work to establish peace in volatile MINUSMA

A team of Bangladesh Police has left Dhaka to join the UN peacekeeping mission in Mali by a chartered aircraft of the United Nations (UN).

The 110-member strong contingent left for Bamako in Mali on Thursday, said a statement issued by the Police Headquarters on Friday, reports BSS.

Apart from the stipulated forces working with different peacekeeping missions under the UN, and Bangladesh Formed Police Unit-2 (BANFPU-2, Rotation), the team will work to establish peace in volatile MINUSMA, the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali, the statement said.

Additional Inspector General of Police Biswas Afzal Hossain, Deputy Inspector General of Police SM Ruhul Amin, and officers of UN desk saw off the peacekeeping team at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, it added.

Bangladesh Police is now ranked as the fourth Police Contributing Country (PCC) in the world with remarkable commitments of police personnel to the UN Mandate.

It all began in 1989 when peacekeepers from Bangladesh left behind a glorious chapter by participating in the United Nations Transition Assistance Group (UNTAG) in an African state named Namibia – ever since, success stories have increased the fame with an admirable total number of 19,366 personnel in 22 UN Missions to date.
