A delegation of the Serbian Armed Forces, led by Head of the Operations Directorate (J-3) of the General Staff Major General Tiosav Janković, attended the ceremony in Nicosia on the occasion of marking the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP).

Held in memory of 04 March 1964 when this peacekeeping operation was established by the UN Security Council Resolution, the ceremony was attended by UN Secretary General’s Special Representative and Head of the UNFICYP Colin Stewart and representatives of the states whose forces are deployed in the mission.

On this occasion, as a sign of recognition for the engagement in the peacekeeping operation in Cyprus, our country was awarded a plaque of the United Nations, which was received by Chargé d' Affairs at the Embassy of the Republic of Serbia in Cyprus Marija Marković.

During his stay in Cyprus, General Jankovic had a meeting with Force Commander, UNFICYP, Major General Erdenebat Batsuuri, and he visited the members of our contingent engaged in the mission HQ and the MP unit.
