The India-Bangladesh joint military 13-day exercise SAMPRITI 2017 concluded on Friday at the Counter Insurgency and Jungle Warfare School (CIJWS) in Vairengte, Mizoram, around 130 kms from state capital Aizwal.
The CIJWS is considered one of the premier institutes of training in the country. Except for China and Pakistan, almost all of India’s neighbours have trained in the institute. At the closing ceremony, both armies gave each other a standing ovation, while the national anthems of both countries played.
“SAMPRITI identifies the close bond that two nation or say to army share. Terrorism has come to stay and we have experienced more of it in our part of the country. Terrorists don’t have borders, we can’t have either. We have to fight this menace together because it has threatened peace, development and very existence of humanity. The whole world is fighting insurgency,” said Major General M S Ghura of the Indian Army.
