Director of the Department Maj. Gen. Hoang Kim Phung said it has organized the course since 2017 but this is the first time it has been held via both online and in-person forms due to COVID-19. The course attracts the participation of 16 trainees from 10 units of the Defence Ministry. All have a good professional background and English skills, said VOV.

The course provides basic knowledge on UN military staff for trainees who are about to join UN peacekeeping missions or participate in management, advisory work, research, and teaching at units involved in peacekeeping missions inside and outside of the Defence Ministry.

It also helps improve the department’s capacity for organizing international training courses on UN peacekeeping, with the aim of increasing the quality of the country’s UN peacekeeping training facility. This is also a chance to intensify the friendship between Vietnam and the US, the EU, and other partners in UN peacekeeping, VNA cited.

Head of the lecturer delegation Julian Bower hailed Vietnam’s efforts to be the first country carrying out the GPOI-assisted training course via both online and in-person forms.
