Peacekeepers complete winter military skills competition
United Nations peace operations work around the world to promote and maintain peace and security, despite facing innumerable challenges while delivering on its mandates.
In Cyprus, UNFICYP organizes regular military skills competition every year to ensure that peacekeepers remain agile, fit for purpose and ready to deploy at short notice. Despite this year’s cold temperatures, our peacekeepers concluded the winter competition of 2022.
The Mission's Force Commander, Major General Ingrid Gjerde, awarded the Mobile Force Reserve team for winning this edition and congratulated their efforts and hard work.
We congratulate the winners and all the participants for their commitment in serving for peace.
