The Government of Sweden Provides a Contribution to the MFO
Uniquely under MFO funding arrangements, peacekeeping under the Peace Treaty of 1979 is primarily financed by the directly interested Parties themselves. A current goal of the MFO's Director General, David Satterfield, is to expand the pool of donors from the international community. For this reason, Sweden's contribution is particularly timely and welcome.
Sweden joins an MFO family of supporting states that, in addition to Egypt and Israel, includes twelve troop-contributing countries and seven other Donor States.
