Hotzone Solutions hosts biological threat training for Saudi Arabian diplomats
The training focused on chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive threats (CBRNe), and took place over a week-long period. A roundtable discussion was held during the course that was focused on the Biological Weapons Convention, its future and biological threats that are considered to have potential as biological weapons.
Discussions were held relating to the nuclear program in Iran and developments of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Diplomats were also briefed on activity relating to the United Nations (UN) Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the World Health Organization, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Biological Weapons Convention’s Implementation Support Unit.
Participants represented the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia. Fahad Alruwaily, secretary-general of the Saudi Arabian National Authority for the Chemical and Biological Weapons Conventions, praised the course and noted that the National Authority would be interested in working with both Hotzone Solutions and the ICI in future courses and other training. Participants received certificates following the end of the course.
