TWENTY military officers comprising senior lieutenants and captains have been briefed on the roles and functions of the International Committee of the Red Cross by Judith Greenwood, the ICRC's head of the Regional Delegation for the Pacific.
According to a government statement, Ms Greenwood said the briefing would help the officers understand the presence of the ICRC in conflict and high-risk situations.
"When they work overseas, it's important that they are well-versed with international humanitarian law and the role that International Committee of the Red Cross plays on its own and as part of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and where the respective functions border upon during any situation," she said.
Commandant of the RFMF Officers Training School Major Peniasi Gade said the ICRC's presentation would empower the officers further by helping them in their professional development as they progress further.
The officers have been undergoing training at the RFMF Officers Training School in Vatuwaqa.
