As well as the 125-perple formed police unit, there is another group of 16 Chinese peacekeeping policemen who work as directors and supervisors of the public security system of Haiti. In January 2000, at the request of the United Nations, China started to dispatch peacekeeping policemen to East Timor. Since then, Chinese peacekeeping policemen have become an important part of its overseas peacekeeping operations. Up to January 2010, China has contributed 1,569 peacekeeping policemen to seven UN peacekeeping task areas in Asia, Africa, Europe and America. (Xinhua Photo)
