India: A long and deep tradition of contributing to UN peacekeeping

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

India has a long tradition of sending women on UN peacekeeping missions. In 1960, women serving in the Indian Armed Forces Medical Services were interviewed by UN Radio before being deployed to the Republic of the Congo.
