The Embassy of Finland in Kurla Lumpur recently visited the Malaysian Peacekeeping Centre, the Embassy writes in an update via their Facebook page.

Both Finland and Malaysia have a long tradition in their strong support to UN peacekeeping operations. Finland joined the United Nations in 1955 and Malaysia followed as the 82nd member of the UN in 1957.

The Malaysian Peacekeeping Centre was established in 1996 in Port Dickson with the motto “Partnering for Peace”. The MPC is committed to providing training and capacity building on multi-dimensional peacekeeping for international military, police, and civilian personnel who will be embarking on UN peacekeeping missions in conflict areas around the world.

During the visit, the Embassy of Finland learned about the Centre’s impressive training curriculum and discussed promising opportunities for cooperation.
