China dispatched its first peacekeeping team of 126 members to Haiti in 2004 after a coup in the country. The eighth peacekeeping force returned on Tuesday after a ten-month mission, and was hailed as having finished all duties for peacekeeping and quake relief fearlessly and brilliantly in the face of the sudden earthquake, tough environments and dangerous missions.
