Uruguay prepares rapid deployment units for UN missions

Montevideo, Jul 17 (Prensa Latina) According to Defense Minister Javier García, Uruguay is today instructing rapid deployment companies for eventual United Nations peacekeeping missions.

García testified to a Parliamentary Committee that reviews the government’s accountability, including the work of ministries and governmental institutions and their budgets.

He expressed that at the same time of the peacekeeping missions, they are working to train rapid deployment companies, which we have offered to the United Nations for some missions.

He added that in case of an invitation from the UN, the type of mission will be politically evaluated and said that two weeks ago the Uruguayan armed forces were inspected by the international organization to that effect.

During his presentation, he affirmed that his country is the first in Latin America to provide female personnel for peace missions.

Uruguayan military contingents are serving as blue helmets in the Golan Heights and in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

He also referred to the increase of investments in the armed institution, including the recovery of capabilities in defense of sovereignty in several areas.
