nearly seven decades” the President said in a message

on the 72 anniversary of the foundation of the UN being

observed today (October 24).

and purposes into reality. This is clearly evidenced,

the top troops contributing countries. Ever since the

inception of the United Nations, 172,000 Pakistani

peacekeepers have helped maintain and build peace for

thousands of people affected by conflicts around the

world. Pakistan pays tributes to its 154 brave

soldiers, who laid down their lives while serving under

the blue flag.
