The purpose of this event is to deliver a Malaysia Protection of Civilians (POC) Training of Trainers (ToT) Course in September, 2017, designed to prepare potential instructors prepare peacekeeping training cadre at national peacekeeping operations training centers on POC concepts and requirements. This course (MASL 273013) 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 in the topic area of POC, and specifically, peacekeeping instructors. This would negatively affect future US-Malaysian cooperation. Malaysia 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.
