GAO, Dec. 1 (ChinaMil) -- The United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) sent an equipment inspection team to the 5th Chinese peacekeeping guard detachment in Mali on November 28.

The seven inspectors examined the performance of all vehicles and checked and sorted out facilities and materials, and concluded that all the equipment and facilities of the detachment met the UN standard.

Located in the southern end of the Sahara Desert, Mali is known for its hot weather and desert environment. To meet the climatic and geological features, the Chinese peacekeepers have explored more than 20 methods for equipment maintenance to keep the weapons in good condition.
