 Based on the November 2015 agreement between Defense Ministers of Japan and Vietnam to cooperate in Peacekeeping Operations (PKO), and in support of efforts by Vietnam to make their first unit-level contribution to the UN PKO, the JSDF engineering unit currently dispatched to the United Nations Mission in the Republic of South Sudan (UNMISS) conducted an invitation program with officers from the Ministry of National Defence and Vietnam People's Army. This program familiarized the Vietnam People's Army with PKO, enhanced the capacity of the Vietnam People's Army through the study of engineering and other field activities, and provided an opportunity to share the relevant knowledge and experience of the JSDF. This was the first capacity building program conducted by a JSDF unit dispatched abroad.
