§ Mr. Ingram
In 2001 the United Kingdom cosponsored GA Resolution 55/282, which fixed the International Day of Peace on 21 September each year. The primary objective of the day is to encourage parties engaged in civil war and armed conflict to allow humanitarian agencies to deliver relief and medical supplies to civilian populations. The United Kingdom continues to make an important contribution to United Nations peacekeeping efforts around the world, most notably in Sierra Leone and the Balkans.
The full details as to the countries in which British armed forces are stationed are published in "Tri-Service Publication 6, Global Location of Service Personnel", a copy of which can be found in the House of Commons Library.
