The purpose of this event is to deliver a Mongolia United Nations Military Observer (UNMO) Course (in August, 2017), designed to prepare potential staff officers in the roles and responsibilities of United Nations Military Observers in complex peacekeeping operations for UN peacekeeping operations. This course (MASL 279389) is regularly conducted by CCMR throughout the Asia-Pacific area. This training was coordinated and agreed upon bilaterally by the US and Mongolian governments during the Bilateral Defense Discussions.
If this course does not occur it would diminish the Mongolia's capacity to train future deploying peacekeepers, specifically UNMOs, to serve in UN Peacekeeping Missions and may negatively affect future US-Mongolia cooperation. There is potential that failure to support this training could adversely impact force generation for potential new UN missions requiring trained military observers or extend already deployed UNMOs in place due to inadequate replacements available.
The course is pre-coordinated in detail and supported by the US Embassy in Ulan Bataar and United States Pacific Command.
