Afghanistan: Mentor and Liaison Teams

Volume 688: debated on Monday 8 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How the roles of United Kingdom operational mentor and liaison teams partnered and deployed alongside Afghan forces differ from the roles of embedded trainers. [HL817]

Operational mentoring and liaison teams (OMLTs) and embedded training teams play similar roles in developing the capacity of the Afghan National Army, the main difference being that embedded training teams are US-operated whereas OMLTs operate under the auspices of NATO.
