July 30th, 2011: A photo exhibition "Sprit of Peace" to commemorate 50 years of Pakistan's contribution to UN peacekeeping mission is underway at Pakistan National Council of Arts (PNCA), Islamabad. The exhibition started on 28 July 2011, when it was inaugurated by Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani. In the exhibition, various endeavors of Pakistan Army which are being done with UN Peacekeeping Forces in different parts of the world have been translated into pictures and photographs. The exhibition is open and number of people is visiting the galleries. It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan has hitherto participated in 41 UN Peacekeeping Missions and has been part of some of the most challenging international conflicts. Since 2006 Pakistan remains the largest troop contributing country with over 10,623 personnel presently deployed in eight peacekeeping missions. This constitutes approximately 11% of the total UN peacekeeping deployment. Till to date, 126 Pakistani peacekeepers have sacrificed their lives out of over 130,000 soldiers deployed so far for the noble cause of helping humanity, building peace and bringing stability across the regions under the banner of United Nations with almost an equal number of Pakistani peacekeepers wounded over five decades during peacekeeping assignments. Pakistan Army understands the cost of peace and is always prepared for any sacrifice for the sake of national as well as international peace and security. It is also worth mentioning that a similar kind of photo exhibition was arranged by Pakistan Mission to the UN at UN Headquarters, New York in April this year. The UN Secretary General Bani-Ki-moon, Chief Guest on the occasion, greatly appreciated Pakistan's significant contributions to UN Peacekeeping Missions across the world, adding that this had brought credibility to the world body. Pakistan has been at the forefront of United Nations efforts to maintain international peace and security by contributing significantly to UN Peacekeeping. The exhibition will remain open for general public until 31 July 2011.
