Over 200 Peruvian Troops to Participate in African Peacekeeping Mission

LIMA – A company of 205 Peruvian troops will join the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA), officials said Tuesday.

The Peruvian “blue helmets” are part of the second group from the “Peru” engineers company and were sent off in a ceremony at the Army General Headquarters, located in the Lima district of San Borja, attended by Defense Minister Jorge Nieto and top military brass.

The unit includes 121 army soldiers, 58 sailors and 26 air force personnel, and their main mission will be the building and maintenance of airstrips in the Central African Republic, the Armed Forces Joint Command said in a statement.

“The Peru Engineers Company will continue this mission for a term of no less than 10 years as part of the agreements with the United Nations. Members of the mission will be relieved annually,” the command said.

The unit began its mission last year in the central African city of Bouar, capital of Nana-Mambere province.
