This event supports delivery of CCMR Peacekeeping program USINDO-PACOM United Nations Staff Officers Course (UNSOC) to members of the Cambodian Armed Forces and a select number of international military officers. This course/event (MASL 279389) is regularly conducted, on an annual basis, by CCMR throughout the Asia-Pacific area. This training was coordinated and agreed upon bilaterally by the US and Malaysia governments during the Bilateral Defense Discussions.
If this course does not occur it would diminish Cambodia’s capacity to train and deploy UN logistics qualified peacekeepers into United Nations peacekeeping missions and nationally train officers at the Cambodia peacekeeping training center. This would negatively affect future US-Cambodian peacekeeping cooperation. There is potential that failure to support this training could adversely impact force generation for potential new UN missions or extend already deployed contingent members in place due to inadequate replacements available.
The course is pre-coordinated in detail and supported by the US Embassy in Phom Penh and United States Indo-Pacific Command.
