This event supports delivery of a CCMR Peacekeeping program Bangladesh Peacekeeping Operations Contingent Commanders Course (PKOCCC) Course to members of the Bangladesh Armed Forces and other regional international military officers. This course/event (MASL 279085) is regularly conducted, on an annual basis, by CCMR throughout the Asia-Pacific and Africa areas. This training was coordinated and agreed upon bilaterally by the US and Bangladesh governments during the Bilateral Defense Discussions.
If this course does not occur it would diminish Bangladesh capacity to train and deploy peacekeepers into the United Nations peacekeeping missions. This would negatively affect future US-Bangladesh peacekeeping cooperation. Bangladesh is currently a regular and well-recognized contributor of peacekeepers and peacekeeping funding to UN Missions worldwide. There is potential that failure to support this training could adversely impact force generation for potential new UN missions or extend already deployed contingents in place due to inadequate replacements available.
The course is pre-coordinated in detail and supported by the US Embassy in Dhaka, Bangladesh and United States Pacific Command..
