SEOUL: US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield will attend a virtual conference on UN peacekeeping hosted by the South Korean government next week, according to her office.
Thomas-Greenfield will lead the US delegation to the virtual 2021 UN Peacekeeping Ministerial hosted by Seoul on December 7 and 8 to reaffirm US commitment to improving peacekeeping operations, the US Mission to the UN said on Friday.
"UN peacekeeping missions are one of the most effective tools the global community has to respond to violence and conflict," Thomas-Greenfield said in a release. "That's why the US is the largest funder of UN peacekeeping in the world, and that's why I am looking forward to this year's UN Peacekeeping Ministerial." (IANS)
