This is the first time for the United Nations to conduct such a security evaluation for the Chinese peacekeepers to Lebanon, according to sources.

The evaluation group conducted a comprehensive evaluation of 280 items for the Chinese peacekeeping contingent, including military defense deployment, medical evacuation and evacuation of the wounded, command and control, warning and intelligence and so on. The evaluation lasts for more than three hours.

The 14th Chinese peacekeeping force to Lebanon has strengthened construction in six aspects since it was deployed to the southern mission area in Lebanon, including command and control ability, emergency response ability, and security guarantee ability in strict accordance with the UNIFIL's evaluation criteria for military protection, said Lt. Col. Sun Zhi, commander of the 14th Chinese peacekeeping force.
