HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam Department of Peace-keeping Operations launched a training course in Hà Nội on Monday for military experts dispatched to the United Nations peace-keeping mission.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Việt Nam People’s Army (VPA) and deputy head of the Defence Ministry’s Steering Committee for Việt Nam’s participation in UN peacekeeping operations Phạm Ngọc Minh underscored the importance of international cooperation in holding courses to improve the capacity of Vietnamese peace-keeping forces towards gradually building a peace-keeping training establishment on par with those in regional countries.
He asked the department to work closely with units and partner countries to ensure that the training curriculum is conducted seriously and in line with regulations.
The course, the seventh of its kind held in Việt Nam, will take place from July 16 to August 3, with the involvement of several VPA lecturers and foreign experts. Participants will be trained in investigation, mediation, interpretation, liaising and relations with the media, and report activities.
During the last five days of the course, they will practise skills in the field, including inspection, investigation and verification, analysis of bombs, mines, and explosives; as well as negotiation and mediation, among other tasks. — VNS
