Force Commander from Norway ​ ​


In August 2014, Major General Kristin Lund of Norway became the first woman to command a United Nations peacekeeping force, when she became the Force Commander of the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) where she served for two years. In October 2017, she was appointed as the Head of Mission and Chief of Staff of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO).
