This event supports delivery of a CCMR Peacekeeping program Japan Peacekeeping Operations Contingent Commanders Course (PKOCCC) Course to members of the Japanese 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 Philippine governments during the Bilateral Defense Discussions.
If this course does not occur it would diminish Japan's capacity to train and deploy peacekeepers into the United Nations peacekeeping missions. This would negatively affect future US-Japanese peacekeeping cooperation. Japan 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 Tokyo, Japan and United States Pacific Command.
