The Vietnam Peacekeeping Center and the U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency on Wednesday opened an English course for Vietnamese military officers and doctors who take part in UN peacekeeping operations. The course, conducted at the Military Hospital 354, aims to improve the English skills of Vietnamese officers and doctors to help them fulfill their duties in UN peacekeeping missions in the future. In implementation of a cooperation agreement between Vietnam and the U.S., the latter has been sponsoring training courses and experience sharing sessions intended for Vietnamese personnel who are part of the UN peacekeeping force, said Colonel Hoang Kim Phung, director of the Vietnam Peacekeeping Center. English training is part of such courses, Col. Phung added. U.S. Major General Steven Rudder, the Director for Strategic Planning and Policy (J5), U.S. Pacific Command, affirmed the U.S.’s commitments and actions in assisting Vietnam in improving its peacekeeping forces. The peacekeeping summit is expected to kick off at the headquarters of the UN in New York in late September. At the summit, Vietnam will inform the international community on its activities in peacekeeping, including deploying a level-2 makeshift hospital, sapper units, liaison officers and guard units for UN peacekeeping missions.
