Three Officers from the European Union (MPCC, EUTM Somalia and EUTM Mozambique) participated as observers in the U.S. AFRICOM exercise Justified Accord 2023 that took place in Kenya, from 16 to 19 Feb 2023. Soldiers from partners directly supported by the EU Training Missions also participated in this Exercise, working together to increase multinational interoperability.

This multi-national exercise brought together nearly 20 countries from 4 continents to increase partner readiness for peacekeeping missions, crisis response and humanitarian assistance.​

The aim was to further strengthen the cooperation between MPCC and AFRICOM, building-up on the existing partnership in order to coordinate and continue joint contributions to the security in Africa.
