A joint military drill has been launched between India and Kazakhstan in Meghalaya

A senior defence officer has announced that the India and Kazakhstan armies have begun a fortnight-long joint exercise in Meghalaya on Thursday.

According to him, the sixth edition of ‘Kazind-22’, a joint training exercise aimed at improving defense cooperation and strengthening bilateral relations between the two nations, has started at Umroi, 25 km from Shillong, and will end on December 28.

During this joint exercise, the two armies will train, plan, and execute a series of combined tactical drills to neutralize potential threats encountered during UN peacekeeping missions.

During 2016, the two countries initiated a joint training exercise known as ‘Exercise Prabal Dostyk’, which was subsequently upgraded to a company-level exercise and renamed ‘Exercise Kazind’.

The Kazakh soldiers were selected from their South-based Regional Command, while the 11 Gorkha Rifles will represent the Indian Army during the exercise.

Besides joint tactical planning and drills, both armies will participate in a variety of combat games, resulting in improved military relations, a greater understanding of each other’s best practices, and a greater ability to operate together while undertaking counterterrorism operations in semi-urban and jungle scenarios under a UN peace enforcement mandate.
