Opening Ceremony UN Peace Keeping Training to Myanmar Armed Forces by Indian Army Delegation

A four member Indian Army Delegation arrived at Naypitaw in Myanmar to imparting training on UN Peacekeeping Operations to Myanmar Army. The training will be conducted over two weeks from 05-16 Feb 2018. This is the fourth edition of such training event.

The two weeks capsule aims at covering nuances of United Nations deployment and operations, with an objective to enhance Myanmar Armys capacity towards undertaking United Nations assignments in near future.

In the recent past, conduct of joint training has been a major event of initiatives aimed at fostering better ties with countries in Indias immediate neighborhood. The Indian Armys rich experience as part of United Nations Force, spanning almost seven decades and its professional approach in UN peacekeeping brings in quality and value to such training.

The opening ceremony was conducted on 05 Feb 2018 which was attended by a number of dignitaries to include Vice Senior General Soe Win, the Deputy Commander-in-Chief of Myanmar Defence Services & Commander-in-Chief (Army) and His Excellency Shri Vikram Misri, Indian Ambassador to Myanmar. A total of 30 selected officers and soldiers of Myanmar Army will be attending the prestigious training.
