Kazakhstani Armed Forces personnel participated in the 27th International Association of Peacekeeping Training Centers (IAPTC) conference held in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.
The conference, with more than 300 representatives from peacekeeping training centers in 80 countries, took place at the International Peace Support Training Centre. Kazakhstani military peacekeepers were among the attendees, as reported by Sarbaz.kz.
The conference delegates discussed the role of partnerships in preparing peacekeepers for the challenges of peacekeeping operations.
"Participation in the conference allowed us to become acquainted with current trends and requirements in the field of peacekeeping and establish new contacts. With the information received, we can promptly adapt the training program for our national peacekeeping contingent," noted Colonel Bauyrzhan Nigmetullin, the head of the Peacekeeping Training Center.
The primary focus of the event is to build peacekeeping capabilities, evaluate and develop strategic cooperation between international organizations, governments, and local authorities interested in enhancing response effectiveness to emergencies.
It's worth noting that the International Association of Peacekeeping Training Centers was established in 1995. Through training, educational programs, and research initiatives, peacekeeping training centers worldwide have successfully prepared over 50,000 peacekeepers from 190 countries.
