The three-day forum hosted by the Ministry of National Defence and the China Institute for International Strategic Studies, attracted over 120 participants from about 30 countries.
An official with the ministry said at the forum that China would send a 700-strong infantry battalion to the UN Mission in South Sudan in the near future, marking the first Chinese battalion to participate in a peacekeeping mission.
According to the ministry, as the largest contributor of peacekeepers among the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, China deployed over 27,000 military personnel around the globe as of September 2014.
Meanwhile, a total of 2,027 Chinese peacekeepers were currently posted in conflict zones. (Xinhua/NAN)
