Egypt hosted a training course for the military trainers of the African Peace Support Forces, which includes cadres from the five African regions to take charge of training the forces participating in the African Peace Support Operations.
The course was held by the African Union Commission in Cairo from 29 August to 9 September and included many lectures and discussions on the training of the military component of the African Peace Support Forces, the principles of international humanitarian law and human rights, and the protection of civilians during armed conflicts.
It also included how to train troops on safety and security procedures, rules of conduct and discipline, and challenges faced by troops in peace support operations.
The course aimed to train and upgrade a number of trained cadres from representatives of all five African regions, as well as familiarising them with the latest methods of training pre-deployment forces to participate in missions of the African Peace Support Operations.
This comes as a confirmation of Egypt’s effective role in the field of African peace and security and its commitments to the continent.
