Min­is­ter of For­eign Af­fairs Sameh Shoukry heads The In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Peace­keep­ing Train­ing Cen­tres (IAPTC) 23th an­nual con­fer­ence that is be­ing hosted in Egypt for the first time.

The con­fer­ence that is ar­ranged in co­or­di­na­tion with Min­istry of In­te­rior and Min­istry of De­fence is tak­ing place for the first time in the Mid­dle East, and the first time in African coun­try since 2008.

A to­tal num­ber of 300 top in­ter­na­tional of­fi­cials and 55 rep­re­sen­ta­tives of in­ter­na­tional and re­gional or­ga­ni­za­tions have at­tended the con­fer­ence, along with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of ma­jor train­ing and re­search cen­tres work­ing in peace­keep­ing.

The con­fer­ence is tak­ing place in Cairo within the frame­work of Egypt’s con­tin­ued role in the field of peace­keep­ing, as it is the third largest coun­try in the world par­tic­i­pat­ing with mil­i­tary ex­perts, and the fifth coun­try con­tribut­ing with po­lice forces, and ranked as the sev­enth among the largest troop con­trib­u­tors.

More­over, an ex­hi­bi­tion of peace­keep­ing op­er­a­tions will be launched on the side­lines of the con­fer­ence.

IAPTC was founded in Canada in 1995, on the aim of fa­cil­i­tat­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion and ex­chang­ing in­for­ma­tion be­tween peace­keep­ing and other re­lated train­ing cen­tres, even among in­di­vid­u­als con­cerned with peace­keep­ing fields.

A to­tal num­ber of 300 top in­ter­na­tional of­fi­cials and 55 rep­re­sen­ta­tives of in­ter­na­tional and re­gional or­gan­i­sa­tions have at­tended the con­fer­ence
