Brazilian military training

Brazil has pledged to help Mozambique set up a peacekeeping unit, which can be used in African Union and other humanitarian and peacekeeping operations around the continent.

A group of officers from the Brazilian army will soon arrive in Mozambique to start training the troops that will form this unit, according to Brazilian Defence Minister Nelson Jobim, speaking to reporters in Maputo on 26 March after an audience with President Armando Guebuza.

Training will take place at barracks in Moamba district, about 70 kilometres northwest of Maputo, which were inaugurated last October. The construction of the barracks was financed by the British government, costing $380,000, while the United States provided kitchen and canteen equipment worth £300,000.

During his one-day visit to Maputo, Jobim also signed a cooperation agreement with his Mozambican counterpart Filipe Nyussi. Among other matters, this covers a programme under which Brazil will train Mozambican pilots.

To facilitate this programme Brazil is offering P27 light aircraft to Mozambique. Tobim promised that the first of these planes would arrive in Maputo shortly.
