The United States has presented a draft Security Council resolution aimed at toughening the U.N. response to failures by peacekeepers in their mission to protect civilians, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley said Wednesday.The draft text, seen by AFP, would reinforce measures such as repatriating peacekeepers, replacing units and withholding U.N. payments for soldiers involved in misconduct – penalties that have irked troop-contributing countries.Pakistan, one of the top three troop contributors to peacekeeping, spoke out against a public "name-and-shame" approach and pointed that a lack of resources was undermining peacekeepers in their missions.The United Nations has 96,000 peacekeepers serving in 14 missions worldwide.
