Since then, the China Post Group to carry out the charitable activities every year. “The box of moon cake festival, carrying the motherland and the people of Victoria and the military respect and affectionate greetings to the infinite.” Former engineering battalion to Lebanon peacekeeping battalion commander of the Luo Fuqiang emotionally.
2006 年 8 月 4 early in the morning, clouds falls. Cemetery, the hundreds of people Xiongpei white, face solemn, quietly waited at the hall outside, waiting for the war at the expense of Paris to the United Nations military observers, according to Du Yu-off. Crowd, a pair of night train arrived from Beijing, Jinan, father and son, father, Fan Keli learned from the local newspaper Du Zhaoyu martyr for the funeral, held the news, they led the 13-year-old child, came off as a martyr . The scene, can not help but feeling: many years of peace under the sun bathed in it, do not forget the heroic sacrifice for the peace, comfort the nether world of the martyrs as ridiculous.
days and nights abroad, the peacekeepers are always concerned about the changes in the motherland, their hearts have been with the pulse of the motherland. Beijing Olympic Games approaching, the peacekeepers rejoice, exhibitions and parties, to show the Chinese people fully prepared with warm hospitality; after the earthquake in Wenchuan and Yushu, blue-helmeted soldiers lazy Rufen, candlelight mourning the dead, donations to help rebuild.
“were farther away from the motherland, the closer the heart from the motherland.” Yong said with emotion, “This is all peacekeepers common feeling.”
past 20 years, both the bridges and maintenance of way, transport materials, or mine clearance, the patients admitted to assist in the repatriation of refugees in the maintenance of world peace on the battlefield, always enlivened Chinese military figure
“At that time we have a common belief that the PLA must not to lose face, be sure to glory for the country, is graced by the military.” lapse of 20 years, participated in China’s first batch of peacekeeping operations Pangyan Dong recall the year to the Middle East peacekeeping mission area trip scenes, and his words reveal the glorious and heroic yet to nothing less.
in 1990 that set off the long wait in the transit lounge, Pangyan Dong and Chen Maolin, Xunan Feng, Xu Jin first, Geng Weilin five Chinese soldiers in every cell of the body are moments of excitement, emotion and a series of mixed feelings filling, stirring. Their hearts are unique to uphold the conviction of Chinese soldiers, as well as shoulder shoulder major responsibility and mission, to get them the highly anticipated upcoming flights – that they will reach the destination frame Damascus aircraft, will the Chinese military abroad start a meaningful journey.
After 20 years, the Chinese army has participated in 18 UN peacekeeping operations, peacekeeping and military personnel sent more than 15,000 people, the United Nations peacekeeping and made tremendous contributions. 20 years, the Chinese peacekeepers in a foreign country to build a bridge more than 230 seats, maintaining the roads over 8000 km, excluding mines and various types of explosives, nearly ten thousand, more than 60,000 patients treated people … … At present, our military serving in nine UN peacekeeping mission area and the successful establishment of UN peacekeeping to send peacekeeping units, military observers and staff officers a total of 1960 people, the UN Security Council permanent members of the troops than any other country.
“Now go to peacekeeping than we were, but ‘happy’ more.” Recalling the work of the year, Pang Yandong not without emotion. Upon receiving the peacekeeping mission in the beginning, because our military is not much interaction with foreign armies, each of China’s military observers and peacekeeping have a sense of mystery, some “two a dark” feeling. Although each of them are able to skillfully use foreign language and master the car driving skills, meet the requirements of United Nations peacekeepers and personnel prerequisites, but there are still many difficulties in front of them – a single supply of food, all day eating biscuits, canned food do not say, Even the United Nations requested the allotment of camouflage uniforms, backpacks, combat boots, compass, gloves, harness, no country was allotted, is to find a few domestic manufacturers temporary rushed … …
Looking back on 20 years of Chinese peacekeeping troops in the way of thorns and the hardship experienced by, Pang Yandong conceal his excitement: “From the beginning of the five individuals, has been developed to nearly two thousand peacekeeping force in these years, the quality of our military peacekeepers and equipment installed with and logistics, health care and other aspects of the improvement is obvious. 20-year-dimensional and changes, not only reflects our country’s national strength, but also records the army gradually the pace of modernization. “
current United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara Force Commander Zhao Jingmin, was the first United Nations peacekeeping operations as a senior commander of the Chinese people. 1991 Western Sahara mission area, in 1996 Iraq – Kuwait border, respectively, he served as military observers in 2007 took part in the Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara Force Commander’s campaign. At that time, the situation is more understanding of the mission area, educational background and professional background, complete, and sufficient leadership and emergency response capabilities, he ultimately successful campaign success, as the mission area, from 29 countries, the supreme commander of peacekeeping troops .
What happened next proved that the low-key and reserved, and the Chinese people are very well qualified for this position. Zhao Jingmin took office in September 2007 after just one month, on the working style and efficiency of the mission area has undergone a significant and positive changes in the mission area conflicts with the United Nations for violating the agreement by the 156 times the number dropped to 50 times ; to 2008, for a whole year only a dozen times. United Nations from the United Kingdom Special Representative for Western Sahara in the mission area, outgoing, gave Zhao Jingmin was that “policies are accurate, appropriate military command.”
Chinese soldiers with excellent quality, good image, friendly actions, moved UN officials, peacekeeping zone moved counterparts and local people, moved the world
Pangyan Dong Although now retired, but about the Middle East in April 1990, arrived in the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization in peacekeeping task areas the situation, I feel like everything that happened in yesterday.
he recalled in an interview with reporters, said the Sinai Peninsula is located in the desert winds, a piece of mine will be exposed, there are often surrounded by sniper. However, just participation in UN peacekeeping operations and China’s military observers, no matter what work or danger, small is small, d is d, there is no water.
Chinese military discipline, the characteristics of management in place, to United Nations officials were impressed. In 1992, Pang Yandong and time involved in peacekeeping in Cambodia, as well. Once a difficult task, UN would first think of the Chinese military. Get that trust, not by boasting, not by juggle, but by a real, really serious effort. United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara Force Commander, the Chinese military Zhao Jingmin said: “I attend every year to the UN, the world’s peacekeeping mission area a dozen representatives of the evaluation of the Chinese peacekeeping forces are high. Congo (DRC ) mission area of ??the Special Representative told me personally that he’s feeling is that the Chinese military discipline, friendship and passion, to their very impressed. “
years, the Chinese soldiers in UN peacekeeping operations by using action to take steps to interpretation of the “guardian of world peace,” meaning, reflect the strict military discipline and excellent style, award-winning. So far, all our military participation in United Nations peacekeeping soldiers were awarded the “United Nations Peace Medal”, eight were the cause of peace officers and soldiers gave their lives was awarded the highest United Nations Medal – “Hammarskjold Medal.” Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan said: “China’s participation in UN peacekeeping operations, fully embodies the Chinese peace-loving, active participation in United Nations affairs, responsible image.” UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also my January 2009 visit to Lebanon peacekeeping work camp officers, praised the military peacekeeping force “to make a significant contribution to world peace.”
now Congo (DRC) Bukavu to participate in peacekeeping operations both Wei told reporters that the formation of the eleventh to Congo (Kinshasa) peacekeeping engineering unit of the Lanzhou Military Region Corps of Engineers, has four times implementation in Congo (Kinshasa) peacekeeping missions. In the meantime, the group has more than 20 officers and soldiers involved in peacekeeping and blessed with the next generation, and the names of all these babies and peacekeeping, Congo affinity, such as “Asia and Africa”, “fruit fruit”, “peace” and so on. And resident in Victoria, “China Peninsula” around the name “Andy”, “Jet Li” African children are also a lot of people, many people will say a few Chinese words, sing songs in fluent Chinese, and some family even started to follow the Chinese peacekeepers for the New Year.
why African people like the Chinese military? Ju Wei said that Chinese soldiers in the local reputation, both because of outstanding performance, outstanding contributions, but also because they form a contrast with the local population Heart. Such examples can be described as handy. August 1, 2009, China’s Tenth Army peacekeeping unit is celebrating 82 years. Suddenly, the combat duty room received an emergency call, the task area headquarters asking them to immediately send personnel to the camps in Bukavu Sail reconnaissance and construction works. Commander weeks Pifeng apart from anything else, immediately led to survey the relevant personnel. Originally, the International Organization for Migration mission MONUC sent a request to help Chinese engineers to build camps. Repaired one day camps, 4,500 refugees will be able to back end of the day a vagrant life. Chinese engineering unit has to use the police station immediately machinery and personnel, into this battle in the. As the time when the dry season, construction site dust will be all the machinery and personnel, “drowned.” Officers and men wear a mask, the intense summer heat, continuous high-intensity fighting for two months, and finally the total area of ??40,000 square meters of the camp refurbished. According to statistics, they accepted the task than the original plan to expand by 15%, but with all the excellent quality of the project, in the Congo (DRC) of land to create another miracle.
Zhao Jingmin said that China’s policy on the depth of African people in developing countries, where Chinese soldiers involved in peacekeeping and local parties to the conflict on the Chinese military is very friendly, able to explain the problem. He said that this is mainly because China has helped the African people, and take the “Give a man a fish, rather teach people to fish” policy. China is to truly want to help these countries, long-term focus on local people’s livelihood. For example, I went to Liberia, peacekeeping forces transmitted to the local population actively rice cultivation technology, 29 March 2005 went to help local units of construction machinery operators training. Also, the Chinese peacekeeping medical team is also active in the local population Songyisongyao, to carry out health promotion. Local people for the Chinese peacekeeping soldiers moved, is inevitable.
