Gen Hafiz made force commander

Major General Abdul Hafiz, NDC, PSC, of Bangladesh Army has been appointed as force commander in United Nations (UN) Peacekeeping Mission in Western Sahara.
He is scheduled to join UN Headquarters in New York today, says a press release sent by Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) yesterday.
Earlier, Hafiz was appointed as force commander, deputy force commander and chief military liaison officer in the UN peacekeeping force in Ivory Coast and as an observer in the UN mission in Kuwait.
He also led the UN force in Ivory Coast as the force commander with efficiency and courage during the recent post-election violence.
Hafiz was selected for the post following Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's demand in the 64th UN General Assembly on September 26, 2009 to ensure Bangladesh's representation in policy-making in UN peacekeeping missions.
Bangladesh is currently the leading country in the category of sending troops in UN peacekeeping missions, added the ISPR release.
