KATHMANDU: Nepal is organizing the Seventh Partnership for Technology in Peacekeeping International Symposium (PTPS) from June 13.

The International Symposium is organized in different countries every year with the objective of using the latest technology as well as developing the possibility for the use of digital technology in peacekeeping with the support of the United Nations.

A spokesperson at the Defense Ministry, Prakash Poudel, shared that such programs are found effective to exchange experience about the technology used in peacekeeping missions, challenges and good practices among member countries in the context of rapid development of information technology and changing security situation in the world.

The Partnership for Technology in Peacekeeping initiative was established by the United Nations in Italy in 2014 for the first time.

Nepal is organizing the PTPS with the collaboration of the UN Office of Information and Communication Technology based on its commitment and contribution to the establishment of world peace.

There would be the participation of around 300 delegates from around 48 countries as well as the UN Headquarters in the symposium, said Brigadier General and Spokesperson of the Nepali Army, Krishna Prasad Bhandari.

At the call of the UN, around 44,565 Nepali peacekeepers have contributed to 44 peacekeeping missions in the world.

Nepal ranks second among the countries contributing the highest number of troops to the peacekeeping mission.

The four-day symposium would provide an opportunity for dialogue and collaboration with representatives of the Peace Mission, Global Service Centre, and UN Headquarters about complex challenges faced in a peacekeeping operation.
