More than 50 countries have offered to contribute some 30,000 new troops and police to UN peacekeeping missions, US President Barack Obama announced Monday.

The pledges represent a major boost to UN blue helmet operations as peacekeeping demands grow worldwide and conflicts become deadlier.

"At this summit, more than 50 countries from Bangladesh to Colombia to Finland and China are making commitments totaling more than 30,000 new troops and police," Obama told a peacekeeping summit held on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
