With the demise of the Cold War politics the peacekeeping forces of the United Nations are worldwide active. On the one hand more than 100,000 “blue berets” are on duty to restore peace. On the other hand, the necessary financial, logistic and structural reforms of the peacekeeping missions are yet to be carried out up to now. However neither the UN administration nor its member states are capable or willing to solve these problems. Multidimensional and multi-layered peace missions combined with logistic shortage overstrain most of the UN missions and thus sometimes it leads to the failure of the peacekeeping missions as in Rwanda or Bosnia. UNFICYP belongs to the oldest UNmissions still continuing peacekeeping missions of the UN. According to its mandate, this mission was a success, however, at the expense of the division of the island. For decades the United Nations Organization is involved in the peace negotiations without appreciable results.
