Voicing the precarious financial position of the United Nations, the UN Secretary General, Mr. Antonia Guterres, has said it owes India a massive 38 million dollars, for its peacekeeping operations. This is the highest the UN has to pay for any country.
In his report on the health of the world body, Mr. Guterres said, as of March 31, 2019, it owes to troop- and police-contributing countries for active peacekeeping missions has been 265 million dollars.
Aparat from India, the UN owes Rwanda 31 million dollars, Pakistan 28 million dollars, Bangladesh 25 million dollars and Nepal 23 million dollars.
These arrears to troop- and police-contributing (TCCs/PCCs) countries are bound to increase to 588 million dollars by June 2019 'in the worst-case scenario'.
