New York, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia extended its appreciation to the efforts being exerted by the United Nations, represented by the operations of peacekeeping (PK) forces, in maintaining international peace and security, stressing that the serious challenges and dangers being faced by all the countries of the world due to international armed conflicts and civil wars, in addition to the large proliferation of terrorist groups which exploit the difficult economic times and the lack of development in some countries, to gain a foothold in those areas, calls for the need for concerted international efforts to strengthen the role of PK forces and develop their mandates.

This came in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's speech delivered here today by the First Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Majid Ali Al-Zawimal, in front of the Special Policy and Decolonization Committee on the item on the comprehensive review of peacekeeping operations.
