Last May 11, the National Peace Operations Training Institute of Uruguay (ENOPU), received the visit of the Georgian Ambassador, Mr. Guela Sekhniachvili.
In this opportunity, the Institute also received the visit of Officers who served in UNOMIG, who shared a pleasant reception.
Mentioned authorities were received by the General Director of SINOMAPA, General Marcelo M. Montaner and by the Director of ENOPU, Col. Niver B. Pereira.
The latter, after welcoming them exposed a presentation about the academic activities carried out by this school, as well as statistics and experiences from Uruguay in Peacekeeping Missions.
As part of the visit, life experiences from the Veterans who served in UNIMOG were shared in the words of Maj. (R) Ronald Garcia.
On the other hand, the writer Maria Laura Doutor, who wrote the book “Kitoko Mingi” shared an advance from her next work in which the experiences of the Officers that served in Georgia will be reflected.
The Director of ENOPU, Col. Niver Pereira dedicated the following words to the veterans:
Dear Veterans from Georgia,
Thank you so much for the support received and your presence. The meeting at ENOPU was very emotional. Hearing the words of several veterans, from the first (Klanian) to the last (Aldaya) takes us to reflect about how we were worthy representatives of our beloved country and that our strengths are the gift of people, our simplicity, and our humanitarian conception.
Due to the characteristics of that mission and especially for the hospitality of its people I have concluded that all of us who served in UNOMIG are bound by a unique feeling. Those experiences and the warm of each Georgian family that adopted us marked us forever.
To those who could not be here, thank you anyways, and we wait for you next time. Because there will be other meetings given that time will escalate the life experience and work for peace and above all the fact that we were privileged to have the opportunity of serving in UNOMIG.
To the Georgia Ambassador, Mr. Guell Sekhniachvili, thank you very much for your visit and for making us remember unique moments of our work as peacekeeper and from our lives.
And to the writer, Laura Doutor and Major Ronal Garcia for leaving us engraved in the best history of the Uruguayan work for world peace. Strong hug veterans!!!
