Japanese media: China injects new values into UN peacekeeping

Feb. 15, 2019 -- China has been an increasingly active participant in UN peacekeeping, bringing much needed resources and new values to those conflict areas, according to a February 12 article published by Japan’s Nikkei Asian Review.
 
Regarding the operation as a disguise of imperialist intervention, China did not support peacekeeping on joining the UN in 1971. By the end of 2018, China has sent the largest number of peacekeepers among the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, contributing 10.25 percent to the UN peacekeeping budget. 
 
By increasing its contributions to UN peacekeeping, China hopes to help strengthen the UN as the only legitimate source of authority for international peace and security, said the article.
 
While China is not likely to reduce its commitment to peacekeeping anytime soon, it may, the article suggests, challenge Western-dominated concepts of peace and peace building.
