Contingents of the Bangladesh Army will take part in a joint exercise with the Indian Army later this month at a newly established training centre at Umroi in Meghalaya, followed by similar exercises by the Indian Army with their counterparts from China and Myanmar next year.

Guwahati-based Defence PRO Lt Col Suneet Newton said the Indo-Bangladesh joint training exercise — named Sampriti 2017 — would start on Monday. A six-day Command Post Exercise (CPX) would be held at the Joint Training Node at Umroi and a 13-day Field Training Exercise (FTX) would be conducted at the Counter-Insurgency and Jungle Warfare School at Vairangte in Mizoram.

“Exercise Sampriti is held alternately in India and Bangladesh every year… It also aims to enhance interoperability between the two nations and enrich from each other’s experience while carrying out counter-insurgency and counter-terrorist operations,” Defence PRO Newton said.
