Danes commemorate UNFICYP work

Danish peacekeepers who took part in the first UNFICYP mission to Cyprus have revisited the buffer zone and laid a commemorative plaque at a ceremony at Ledra Pallas.
Denmark was part of the first group of countries to send peacekeepers to Cyprus. The first Danish soldiers of the UNFICYP Danish Contingent (DANCON) arrived in Cyprus in May 1964. Since then 22,623 Danish peacekeepers served in Cyprus until their departure in 1996. 25 lost their life while serving on the island.
The honorary plaque to commemorate 32 years of service was unveiled in the presence of the Danish Ambassador Casper Klynge.
