UN Awards Medal to Nepal Army


Since becoming a member of the United Nations in 1955, more than 100,000 Nepalis have served in peacekeeping missions around the globe.  On December 14, 2017, a Nepal Army unit was rewarded with a United Nations Medal.   Stationed at Rumbek of South Sudan, the unit was awarded for its outstanding performance by UN Force Commander Lieutenant General Frank Mushyo Kamanzi.  UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres thanked Nepal Army for its role in maintaining peace in the world.

Earlier on November, a Nepal Police unit serving in South Sudan was awarded with a United Nations Medal for its excellent service in the South Sudan Capital of Juba.
