JUBA, April 27 -- The 9th Chinese Peacekeeping Infantry Battalion to the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) recently received its first combat readiness assessment by the UNMISS, and passed it with excellent results.
朱巴，4月26日电 -- 近日，联合国驻南苏丹特派团（联南苏团）对中国第九批赴南苏丹（朱巴）维和步兵营进行首次战备能力评估。中国营以优异成绩通过本次战备能力评估。
Combat readiness assessment mainly tests the contingent’s capabilities to carry out assigned tasks and respond to various emergencies. The UNMISS assessment team conducted the two-day verification and evaluation for 211 items in 16 categories in the Chinese battalion.
On the first day, the assessment team listened to the briefing of the Chinese battalion on combat readiness capability building, and organized a table top exercise. On the second day, they ordered the contingent to conduct on-the-spot drill, which included four tasks, that is, cordon and search, camp defense, reinforcement and civilian protection. The drill tested the capabilities of the contingent in command and control, force coordination, comprehensive support, and application of engagement rules.评估当日，考评组听取了中国营关于战备能力建设的相关汇报，随后查看了软件资料，并下达演练想定，组织桌面推演。次日，考评组组织维和步兵营进行了警戒搜索、营区防卫、增援和保护平民4项任务的现地演练，重点检验了中国营指挥控制、兵力协同、综合保障、交战规则运用等能力。
