In March this year 2019, a Pakistani peacekeeper honored with UN medal posthumously.
Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi — accepted the award on behalf of the family of Naik Muhammad Naeem Raza.
The solider had embraced martyrdom although serving with the UN Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUSCO).
Speaking to APP, Lodhi said she was “humbled and honored” to receive the award on behalf of Shaheed Raza.
She said, “Pakistani peacekeepers continue to serve UN peacekeeping missions with distinction and fly the flag of Pakistan high.”
“Their sacrifices are a testimony to Pakistan’s pledge to upholding international peace and security.”
