I am honored to work with our host nation, Nicaragua, and our partner-nation participants. This exercise is designed to build regional teamwork, enhance communication and improve capabilities within the hemisphere. By providing challenging training scenarios, we will continue to achieve our goal of providing our partner nations' peacekeepers vital and essential training that allows them to bring stability to parts of the world ravaged by war, famine and disease.
