Summary

Forty frontline officers from Tajikistan’s Border Troops and Customs Service learned how to effectively detect and eliminate weapons of mass destruction at border checkpoints.

The training courses were organised by the OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe in November 2018, and further strengthened the capacity of Tajikistan to counter the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The courses consisted of theoretical and practical training sessions, of which the latter were held in the Dushanbe Regional Training Centre on weapons of mass destruction, non-proliferation and export control for Afghanistan and the countries of Central Asia and the Caucasus.

The aim of the training was to assist Tajikistan in the implementation of international standards, in particular UN Security Council Resolution 1540 regarding the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
