"Nepal and Nepal Army have extensive knowledge and experience in peace support operations. Hosting this type of exercise in Nepal will not only enhance Nepal's peacekeeping capabilities but will also help other participating nations," said an army statement.

The participating countries are mostly from the Asia Pacific region, including Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Jordan and India.

The event is supported by Global Peace Operations Initiative, which is an international program of the Group of Eight (G8) countries for enhancing capacities of the peacekeeping missions globally.

Nepal has been a key contributor to the United Nations peacekeeping forces, working in conflict-ridden areas ranging from Lebanon and Kosovo to Haiti and South Sudan.
