China is the biggest contributor of troops to PKOs the Security Council’s permanent members.
Chinese “Blue Helmets” are involved in several parts of the world, but are mostly in Africa. China provides combat troops, civilian police, military observers, engineering battalions and medical units. All of the troops from China are operating in missions in Africa.
As of December 2012, China ranks 15th among the 115 UN members participating in peacekeeping operations, in terms of number of troops involved. The four other Security Council permanent members are well behind; France ranks 26th, the UK 45th, the USA 57th and Russia 65th. Despite this development China lags behind the top five troop-contributing countries: Pakistan (8 967), Bangladesh (8 828), India (7 839), Ethiopia (5 857) and Nigeria (5 441).
