About International Day of UN Peacekeepers:
The UN General Assembly adopted a resolution in 2003 and designated 29 May as the International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers. The day was established to honour the memory of the UN peacekeepers who have lost their lives in the cause of peace and pay tribute to all the men and women who have served and continue to serve in UN peacekeeping operations for their high level of professionalism, dedication and courage.
