KAZAKSHTAN’S PEACEKEEPERS ARRIVE IN LEBANON

One hundred and twenty peacekeepers of the joint peacekeeping company of Kazakhstan’s Peacekeeping Regiment arrived in the Lebanese Republic to participate in the mission of the United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL), serving as part of INDKAZBATT. It is for the first time in the history of Central Asia that a peacekeeping contingent from the region is participating in a UN peacekeeping operation.
The necessary pre-deployment training, specific to this mission, was carried out for the personnel of the Kazakh contingent, both in India and Kazakhstan, the latter by an Indian mobile training team. 

[TurkishLibrary.Us | November 5, 2018] The legal framework for this co-deployment has been laid out in the Memorandum of Understanding between the Governments of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Republic of India on joint participation in the UNIFIL mission that has been ratified by the Kazakhstan’s Parliament.

Noteworthy, the first ever deployment of Kazakhstan’s contingent in the UN mission has been finalized during the time that Kazakhstan served as a non-permanent member in the UN Security Council, over the two-year term from January 2017 to December 2018.

Fulfilling its pledges, Kazakhstan intends to expand its contribution to United Nations peacekeeping through sending more military personnel who are highly well trained with the required competence and capabilities for UN field missions operating protracted and asymmetric conflict zones.

With due attention to ensuring the high level of preparedness of its personnel, Kazakhstan has established the Partnership for Peace Training Centre (KAZCENT) that has already reached the highest international standards of training and a member of the Partnership Training and Education Centres Community. The UN has already started the process of evaluation of KAZCENT’s peacekeeping courses, and it is anticipated that their certification will add a great impetus to the development of peacekeeping capabilities not only of Kazakhstan but the entire Central Asian region.
