On Thursday, April 5, the Ambassador of the United States in Chile, Alejandro Wolff, the Commander of the Marine Infantry Corps, Rear Admiral Marco Amigo, and General Leonardo Martínez, Director of International Operations for Joint Chiefs of Staff, inaugurated the training center for peace operations in urban areas, which was recently built at Fort Aguayo in Concón.

The ceremony will take place as part of the conclusion of the annual training exercise entitled “PKO Americas”, which brings together staff from 12 different countries of the southern hemisphere.
The training center, which resembles an urban area with 8 types of buildings, was built thanks to a contribution of almost USD $500,000 from the Southern Command of the U.S. Armed Forces.  This is the first project of its type to be implemented in Chile to support the training of staff in charge of maintaining the peace and civil stability.
