Partnership Staff Element
Through training programmes, participation in peacekeeping mission and exercises, PfP helps foster a new generation of officers fully interoperable with their NATO counterparts.  In this regard, Partnership Staff Element (PSE) Concept is the most valuable tool. PSE Concept creates possibilities for Partners to deploy their officers within various NATO Headquarters and Commands, to gain experience and knowledge working side-by-side with Allies in the same headquarters and offices. Azerbaijan is effectively using this instrument and since 2002 has provided 20 (twenty) officers for PSE posts. As of now seven officers of Azerbaijan are serving at various NATO headquarters, covering Partnership related positions
