“Exercise Justified Accord is a key element of the broader U.S. approach to partnering with our African partners and building our collective preparedness,” said Brig. Gen. Ronald A. Cupples, U.S. Army Southern Europe Task Force, deputy commanding general for Africa. “Conducting this exercise with our allies and partners demonstrates our firm commitment to fostering regional security capacities across Africa.”

During the warranted agreement, training will focus on activities supporting the joint US Forces, Kenyan Armed Forces units and other partners in a multinational field exercise. Participants prepare for counter-terrorism crisis response and peace support operations with US crisis action planning, an African Union staff officer course and a command post exercise.

A key component is the ability to engage multidimensional entities such as civilians, police and military in training events that will build partner networks among joint forces, US interagency, international and multinational organizations.
