On May 10, 2013 the Embassy of the United States Dushanbe’s Office of Military Cooperation (OMC) and the U.S. Partnership for Peace Training and Education Center (USPTC) concluded a week-long workshop with the Tajikistan Ministry of Defense on the logistics of pledging and deploying an independent company on a United Nations peacekeeping mission. Officers from the Ministry, General Staff, Mobile Forces, and the Peacekeeping Battalion participated in the detailed workshop, including working through likely contingent-owned equipment and self-sustainment requirements for a notional sector reserve company. USPTC instructors included a French representative from the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations, a United Kingdom officer currently assigned as an instructor at the Peace Operations Training Center in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and the lead planner from the Peace Support Operations Department of the Mongolian General Staff. During the event, the Tajikistan Ministry of Defense confirmed their intent to send a contingent to Mongolia’s KHAAN QUEST 13 peacekeeping exercise in August.
