The Mongolian and Indian armed forces are holding a 12-day joint training exercise in Mongolia aimed at developing synergy in counter-insurgency and counter-terror operations.
The training exercise commenced on Monday in the Mongolian capital city Ulaanbaatar, in which 45 personnel of the 17th Battalion of the Punjab Regiment and 60 from the Mongolian armed forces are participating.
Since 2006, this exercise has been instrumental in improving the scope of military association between the two countries. Its aim is to develop synergy and interoperability between the two armies in countering insurgency/terrorism under the United Nations mandate.
They will share its practical experiences of counter-insurgency and counter-terrorist operations, hostage rescue situations, setting up of mobile checkposts and drills to neutralise improvised explosive devices,” he added.
