By Shahzad Malik
ISLAMABAD: Over 250 officials of law enforcement agencies are likely to miss the United Nations peacekeeping missions in Kosovo and East Timor if the United States and its allies wage war against Iraq.
The Interior Ministry has asked the government to postpone plans to send the officials to join peacekeeping missions till the Iraq dispute is settled, sources told Daily Times.
The Pakistani contingent has already been delayed by four months, sources added.
“Officially we have not been told to postpone preparations for joining the UN in Kosovo or East Timor,” successful candidates for the missions told Daily Times.
