The one-week training course was requested by the Saudi Arabian National Authority for the Chemical and Biological Weapons Conventions.
During the training session, the diplomats learned about the Chemical Weapons Convention, the Biological and Toxins Weapons Convention and the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty.
The training was completed in The Hague, which is the government seat of the Netherlands. During their stay, the diplomats were able to visit the Netherlands Institute of International Relations 'Clingendael,' a think tank and diplomatic academy on international affairs, including analysis of global developments, international security and conflict management.
They also were able to visit the International Criminal Court, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research.
Hotzone said the Saudi Arabian organizers were satisfied with the program, and indicated an intention to have similar training sessions in the future.
The course was the first of its kind since Hotzone Solutions was established in 2010. The company provides CBRNE training, medical countermeasures training, consulting and live agent testing services for military, emergency responders, law enforcement officers and security specialists.
