The objective of the training is to enhance the confidence and trust between the two armies, which may be called upon to grapple with anti-terrorism operations even under the U.N. mandate. Conducting joint military exercises is also an important step to uphold the values of peace, prosperity and stability in the region by jointly eradicating terrorism, the Army PRO told the media.

The 12-day schedule is focused on training in crossing obstacles, special heliborne operations, firing of weapons, handling and neutralisation of improvised explosive devices and conducting cordon and search operations in the environment facing insurgency and terrorism. The exercise will end on November 25.
