Newly appointed Indian Force Commander of UN mission to South Sudan encourages peacekeepers

Decorated Indian Army officer Lieutenant General Shailesh Sadashiv Tinaikar, who will be leading about 15,000 troops as the newly appointed Force Commander of the UN mission in war-ravaged South Sudan, has encouraged peacekeepers to achieve their mandate and overcome difficulties with patience and perseverance.

Tinaikar arrived in South Sudan capital Juba on July 6 and assumed charge as the UNMISS Force Commander.

“I am confident that with your full support, we will be able to achieve the mandate that has been assigned to us. I know the difficulties of the mandate but I don’t think anything is so difficult that you cannot achieve it with effort, patience and perseverance,” Tinaikar said in a video posted by the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).
