The purpose of this event is to deliver a Sri Lanka United Nations Civil-Military Cooperation (UNCIMIC) Course in July, 2018, designed to prepare potential staff officers in the roles and responsibilities of military staff supporting the military component of deployed UN peacekeeping missions. This training was coordinated and agreed upon bilaterally by the US and Sri Lanka governments during the Bilateral Defense Discussions.
This project is a course regularly offered as part of Navy Security Cooperation Programs, and is identified by course MASL P279068.
If this course does not occur it would diminish Sri Lanka’s capacity to train future deploying peacekeepers, and specifically, peacekeeping staff officers. This would negatively affect future US-Sri Lanka cooperation. There is potential that failure to support this training could adversely impact force generation for potential new UN missions or extend already deployed staff officers in place due to inadequate replacements available.
The course is pre-coordinated in detail and supported by the US Embassy in Colombo, Sri Lanka and United States Pacific Command.
