Romania in Peacekeeping Operations

Romania as a member state of UN, NATO and EU has had a significant participation in international missions. This is consonant with the constant efforts and the traditional demarches in the Romanian foreign policy, matching the international community’s concern and concerted action to ensure security, stability and peace, prevent conflicts or settle them by peaceful means, and help in post-conflict reconstruction. Likewise, Romania’s involvement in UN peacekeeping operations highlighted the efficiency of the Romanian institutions with responsibilities for national defense and security along with Romania’s political availability to attend multinational military activities aimed at preserving peace and international stability.  

The Romanian contribution to the UN-led operations as of January 31st, 2017 includes 101 participants (without the close protection personnel), ranking in the 69th position out of the 126 contributing member states, in accordance with DPKO report and is assigned as follows:
