Afghan border guards complete OSCE-arranged training courses
PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Afghan border police officers have completed two training courses in Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan, said the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
Nineteen Afghan border police officers attended a four-week course on patrolling and leadership, and a three-week joint operational planning course for 10 Tajik border troops and as many Afghan border police officers.
The basic patrol leadership course was focused on planning and conducting border patrols with the use of topographical maps, satellite imagery and other tools, to develop planning and management techniques.
A statement from OSCE said the courses enabled the participants improved their skills in reporting and analysis, mountaineering and providing first aid in the field.
Markus Mueller, head of the OSCE Office in Tajikistan, hoped: “Enhancing cross-border cooperation, established through the delivery of such courses, will have a positive impact on relevant responses to border challenges.”
The joint operational planning course attendees were trained on management and analysis for operational planning in action, decision-making process, preparation and implementation of plans.
