“Strong triangular cooperation is a crucial factor to enhance peacekeeping operations. It is particularly relevant today as the Secretary-General’s Action for Peacekeeping (A4P) initiative is aimed at fostering collective solutions to deal with the challenges that peacekeeping face. The common work of the Security Council, the Troop and Police Contributing Countries, and the Secretariat, along with other stakeholders, will be key to ensure continued progress.”

“In many contexts, peacekeeping missions are likely to benefit from more consistent and closer engagement between the Security Council and the host government. And, as this Council is very aware, partnerships with regional and sub-regional organizations is increasingly key for the efficiency of peacekeeping.”

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Lieutenant General Dennis Gyllensporre, Force Commander of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA):
“It is important for the mission that the Secretariat and the member states continue to support TCCs from the very beginning, including pre-deployment and also, subsequently, in-mission training, with equipment and associated training efforts. This is of particular relevance for TCCs going to high-risk missions like in Mali. It is key to have clearly defined goals and standards for our traditional troop contributing countries on what the UN’ s expectations are, and increased support for training during pre-deployment in addition to in-mission training requirements.”

STORYLINE
The UN peacekeeping chief Jean-Pierre Lacroix today said, “strong triangular cooperation is a crucial factor to enhance peacekeeping operations.”

Speaking at a Security Council debate on Strengthening Triangular Cooperation today (10 Jul) in New York, Under-Secretary General for Peacekeeping Operations Jean-Pierre Lacroix stated ways to strengthen, sharpen and re-energize approach to the triangular dialogue and cooperation between the Security Council, troop- and police-contributing countries, and the Secretariat.

He told the delegates that the Secretary-General’s Action for Peacekeeping (A4P) initiative is aimed at fostering collective solutions to deal with the challenges that peacekeeping face, adding that “the common work of the Security Council, Troop and Police Contributing Countries and the Secretariat, along with other stakeholders, will be key to ensure continued progress.”

The peacekeeping chief noted that the benefits of the triangular cooperation applies to many areas of peacekeeping, including improving the safety and security of peacekeepers. He also noted that mandates can also strongly benefit from the perspectives and experiences of troop and police contributors present on the ground, in order to make them more focused, adapted and achievable.

Lacroix reiterated, “In many contexts, peacekeeping missions are likely to benefit from more consistent and closer engagement between the Security Council and the host government. And, as this Council is very aware, partnerships with regional and sub-regional organizations is increasingly key for the efficiency of peacekeeping.”

Also briefing the Council, Lieutenant General Dennis Gyllensporre, Force Commander of MINUSMA said, “It is important for the mission that the Secretariat and the member states continue to support TCCs from the very beginning, including pre-deployment and also, subsequently, in-mission training, with equipment and associated training efforts. This is of particular relevance for TCCs going to high-risk missions like in Mali."

He continued, "It is key to have clearly defined goals and standards for our traditional troop contributing countries on what the UN’ s expectations are, and increased support for training during pre-deployment in addition to in-mission training requirements.”
