Pay $46.60-mn peace-keeping bill: India to UN India has approached the United Nations for settling a $46.60-million charge for running peacekeeping mission during the past five-six years. But given the financial crisis the UN is going through due to on-payment of budgetary dues by the US and Japan, the money may take a while to come in. At present, the UN runs 14 peacekeeping operations, and the expenses for the period from July 1, 2010 to June 31, 2011 alone is estimated at $7.83 billion. The Indian peacekeeping forces of 8,680 troops and police personnel are employed in key UN missions in Sudan, Congo, Coteâ€™ dâ€™Ivoire, Haiti and Liberia. India, the third biggest contributor among the 115 UN members that send troops to peacekeeping missions has claims of $24.86 million for troop and policing costs and $21.74 million for equipment.
