New Delhi: A batch of UN woman peacekeepers, also known as 'Blue Berets', will be trained here during a 12-day workshop starting next week.

The April 3-14 workshop, being jointly organised by the the Centre for United Nations Peacekeeping (CUNPK) in India and UN Women, will be held at the Manekshaw Centre.

A total of 41 participants from 27 countries are slated to attend the course which will make them deployment-ready.

It would be the third batch of female troops to be trained by the CUNPK.

"The training team consists of some of the most experienced and seasoned speakers from across the globe. Participation from all the continents including instructors, facilitators and evaluators has ensured balanced regional representation," said a Ministry of External Affairs statement.

India has historically been one of the leading contributors to UN peacekeeping missions.

Around 100,000 peacekeepers, contributed by 126 member states, are presently deployed in 16 missions across the globe.
