Rotation of SAF Contingent in UN Peacekeeping Operation in CAR
Wednesday, 1.12.2021 | Multinational Operations
Members of the Serbian Armed Forces who have been deployed in the United Nations peacekeeping operation in the Central African Republic since March this year have returned to the country after handing over their duties to a new contingent of the Serbian Armed Forces.
In the previous nine months, the Serbian Armed Forces contingent, with the Level 2 + Military Hospital, was in charge of the first and second line of health care for United Nations personnel, emergency surgery and other interventions, basic dental care and evacuation of the injured.
In the complex security and epidemiological conditions in the area of operation, the members of the Serbian Armed Forces successfully completed all tasks and thus appropriately represented the Serbian Armed Forces and the Republic of Serbia.
The United Nations peacekeeping operation in the Central African Republic was established by a Security Council resolution of 10 April 2014. In the same year, the Republic of Serbia deployed medical and non-medical personnel to the military hospital in the capital Bangui, and the 12th contingent of the Serbian Armed Forces is currently deployed in this operation.
