U.S. government supports the training of CAR Army Officers

Chargé d’Affaires a.i. John Robinson attended a reception in honor of the Central African officers who took part in the IMET program.

The International Military Education and Training (IMET) program is a key U.S. commitment in the professionalization of a partner country’s military force.

Last year, the U.S. Embassy’s Office of Security Cooperation (OSC) supported and sent 14 officers from the Central African Armed Forces to attend various training courses, including Security Resource Management in Africa, Security Responses to Illegal Logging, Terrorism and Security Curricula, and more.

During the reception, the Chargé d’Affaires announced an additional funding of $50,000 to send 11 officer students to benefit from U.S. security training. This initiative will greatly continue to support the bilateral military partnership interests between the U.S. and Central African Republic.
