In 2015, Argentina committed to a 33% participation rate of women peacekeepers. To date, Argentina has achieved a 15% of women peacekeepers.
To continue making progress towards the objectives set out in resolution 1325 (2000), we wish to take this opportunity to reaffirm some of the commitments taken on by Argentina.

In June 2019, the United States (US) adopted a national strategy on Women, Peace, and Security (WPS).
