Peacekeeping Deployment Workshop in Tajikistan

Bureau of Political-Military Affairs
May 10, 2013


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.
