United Nations – Mexico’s forthcoming participation in peacekeeping operations (September 24, 2014)

France welcomes the announcement made yesterday in New York by President Enrique Peña Nieto that Mexico will soon participate in UN peacekeeping operations.

This decision demonstrates Mexico’s determination to fully assume its responsibilities on the international stage, beyond its financial contribution to peacekeeping operations.

Mexico will bring to the peacekeeping operations its significant experience with conflict resolution and humanitarian action. At a time of multiple crises, this decision will help strengthen the UN’s response capacity.
