The purpose of this event is to deliver a Malaysia Peacekeeping Operations Instructors Course (PKOIC) in August, 2017, designed to prepare potential instructors in the roles and responsibilities of peacekeeping training cadre at national peacekeeping operations training centers. This course (MASL 279392) is regularly conducted by CCMR throughout the Asia-Pacific area. This training was coordinated and agreed upon bilaterally by the US and Malaysian governments during the Bilateral Defense Discussions.
If this course does not occur it would diminish Malaysia's capacity to train future deploying peacekeepers, and specifically, peacekeeping instructors. This would negatively affect future US-Nepal cooperation. Nepal is currently a major contributor of peacekeepers 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 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and United States Pacific Command.
