It is heartening to note that besides peacekeeping duties, the Chinese peacekeeping forces are teaching the pupils of the Ganbo town primary school in Zwedru city of Liberia to read Chinese. The efforts by Ding Shuo, a platoon leader of the 12th Chinese peacekeeping engineer detachment to Liberia and a postgraduate, who teaches the pupils Chinese, is commendable. This is one way for the peacekeeping forces to interact with the locals. Such an approach of interacting with the locals should form part of the peacekeeping duties and practice in order to win the hearts and minds of the local people. This way, the locals will be more appreciative of the presence and efforts by the peacekeeping forces which is for their own good and security.
