  • Satish Nambiar replies: The essence of the answer to the first query can be found in Chapter 24 of my book: “For the Honour of India: A History of Indian Peacekeeping”, Centre for Armed Forces Historical Research, the United Service Institution of India, New Delhi, Lancer, May 2009.

    As for the second query, the use of peacekeeping as a political tool can only be prevented by reforming the UN Security Council to reflect the realities of the international situation as it is today in the second decade of the 21st century.
