On September 25, 2018, the "Partnership for Peace" training center hosted the delegation from College of Defense department and the Military College of Land Forces of the Indian Army with a familiarization visit with the representatives from KAZCENT.
The aim of the visit was to familiarize officers of the High Command staff of Indian Armed Forces with the structure, activities and capabilities of the "Partnership for Peace" training center.
Major R. Suleimenov, chief of the Administrative and Protocol support section, presented a presentation on the goals and objectives, the structure and activities of the center, the results achieved and the prospects for development.
Due to the fact that peacekeeping training and English language courses are held annually in India, the delegation expressed its readiness to accept for training both instructors and servicemen of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Kazakhstan. And also assist in preparation, organization and implementation of the courses conducted by KAZCENT. They excluded the possibility of allocating mobile training teams for field training with peacekeeping units in peacekeeping exercises.
At the end of the meeting, the Head of the delegation and the Defense attaché noted the importance of cooperation between the Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Ministry of Defense of India in the field of peacekeeping.
