The European Union fully backs the United Nation’s peacekeeping operations, the EU said in a statement drafted by the Czech Republic and presented at the UN Security Council meeting on Friday. The statement was presented by Petr Kaiser, Czech deputy ambassador to the UN. Mr Kaiser has said that the United Nation’s peacekeeping capacities should be deployed only when there was no other viable option and only for the shortest time necessary.
