Chinese Ministry of Public Security said on Wednesday that the 14th contingent of police officers would be dispatched early Thursday morning for a United Nations (UN) peacekeeping mission in Liberia.

The ministry spokesman said in Beijing that the 12-member team was formed by the Jiangxi Public Security Authority in east China.

He said the team had been trained in international law, first aid, driving, English language, marksmanship and the regional situation.

The spokesperson said since 2000, China had dispatched 2,290 peacekeeping police to nine-task regions, including Timor-Leste, Liberia and Haiti.

“At present, 161 Chinese peacekeeping police are still in three task zones, including Liberia and South Sudan.

“Over the last 15 years, Chinese peacekeeping police have dealt with 700 mass riots and taken part in suppressing militants, and quake relief,’’ he said.

He said they have confiscated more than 9,500 weapons, helped more than 18,000 refugees return home, rescued more than 390 hostages and caught 2,436 suspects.

The spokesperson said China would make more efforts in UN peacekeeping missions with its improving national strength. (Xinhua/NAN)
