China has become the country with the largest number of standby peacekeeping troops of the most diversified profile, says a white paper released by the State Council Information Office Friday.


China's armed forces fully support the UN in developing the Peacekeeping Capability Readiness System and reinforcing UN rapid deployment capacity, according to the white paper titled "China's Armed Forces: 30 Years of UN Peacekeeping Operations."


In September 2017, China completed the registration of a UN peacekeeping standby force of 8,000 troops. This force has 28 units in ten categories - infantry, engineer, transport, medical, force protection, rapid response, helicopter, transport aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, and surface ship units.


In addition, in June 2016, the Chinese Ministry of Public Security set up a permanent peacekeeping police squad, the first of its kind in the world.
