Brazilian Peacekeepers


Brazil is a founding member of the United Nations and participates in all of its specialized agencies. Brazil is among the twenty top contributors to United Nations peacekeeping operations, and has participated in peacekeeping efforts in the Middle East, the former Belgian Congo, Cyprus, Mozambique, Angola, and more recently East Timor and Haiti. In 2010-2011, Brazil held a non-permanent seat in the Security Council for a two-year mandate. Along with Japan, Brazil has been elected more times to the Council than any other UN Member State.
