6月初,在联南苏团与南苏丹政府的统一协调下,中国第3批赴南苏丹维和步兵营与南苏丹政府军在朱巴联合开展了一次清查非法武装分子行动。这是中国赴南苏丹维和步兵营首次与当地政府军联合执行任务。

JUBA, June 7 (ChinaMil) -- Under the coordination of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) and the South Sudanese government, the 3rd Chinese peacekeeping infantry battalion to South Sudan and South Sudanese government forces carried out a joint action in Juba to arrest illegal militants in early June, 2017. It is the first time that the two sides carried out a joint mission.

5月下旬以来,位于朱巴的一座难民营附近,接连发生针对联合国人员和平民的袭击和抢劫,给联合国人员和当地民众带来了严重的安全威胁。情报显示,在这座难民营北侧的丛林中,藏匿着一个非法武装团伙。

Attacks and robbery targeting UN personnel and local civilians have taken place frequently near an asylum in Juba since late May in 2017, posing a serious security threat. Intelligence showed that an illegal armed group was hiding out in the bushes north of the asylum.

经过近两个小时的联合清查,中国维和步兵营与南苏丹政府军抓捕多名非法武装分子嫌疑人。

After nearly two hours of joint inspection, the Chinese peacekeeping infantry battalion and South Sudanese government forces arrested several suspects.

指挥此次行动的联南苏团南战区司令金杜•泰真表示:“中国军人在这次联合行动中表现出来的专业素质值得称道。这次联合行动为联南苏团与南苏丹政府军进行合作提供了范例。”

"Chinese soldiers demonstrated commendable professionalism in the joint action, and this action set an example for the cooperation between the UNMISS and South Sudanese government forces," said the commander of the UNMISS southern theater who was in charge of the joint action.
