    In its 30 years of UN peacekeeping operations, China has dispatched more than 40,000 peacekeepers to over 30 missions, contributing more peacekeepers than any other permanent member of the Security Council. But there are also accusations that China only sends soldiers abroad to protect its own economic and even geopolitical interests.
