India to take part in 17-nation exercise in Russia
NEW DELHI: India is all set to take part in the multi-nation military exercise 'Zapad' at Nizhniy in Russia from September 3 to 16. Both China and Pakistan are also participating in the 17-nation exercise but as “observers” without actual troops being deployed for the exercise.
The Indian Army has dispatched around 200 soldiers, primarily from the Naga Regiment, as an “all arms combined task force” for the exercise, which is one of the theatre level exercises of the Russian armed forces.
“The exercise aims to enhance military and strategic ties amongst the participating nations while they plan and execute this exercise, which will focus on counter-terrorism operations,” said an officer.
We feel proud of Indian Armed Forces. India is like another world with so many races with different qualities/capabilities in them making our Army with all the required characteristics of a Superb Force.
It's a good move to be in coordination with both US and Russia. Both are our friends now with Russia for many decades backing India on all fronts wng more trust of Indians while US has also developed stronger ties in recent years.
That's y u have to select and elect responsible leaders.Just like biden if India had elected other than modiji then most probably india also could have become another Pak or Afghanistan. We should thank ourselves that we r ruled by Modiji a very matured selfless leader
I think MODIJI should forge strong relationships with Russia.Russia,was our all weather friend .But Trump was,also a good friend of India whereas Biden looks like a treacherous betrayer. Better to move with Russia
India is drifting towards the right alliance which will benefit India.. All since with western nations is not that beneficial as is with the Neighbour's and eastern nations.. America only sold weapons which hardly can be used. America used that far superior weapons in Afghanistan yet lost so badly
India has to defend itself without any support that's the only solution.
I think biden is betraying all the US allies
biden taught hypocrates a lesson in hypocracy
Russia has been a true friend to India since decades..It's essential for India to grow the root of friendship with Russia especially when Biden is the President of USA
What's the point of exercise when you are doing it in front of your enemies?
With BIDEN at the helm of US all the allies are left high and dry.This foolish persons one dirty decision has left all its allies Ii jittery.
Getting ready for war with aliens or with each other?
Shameless country US has lost its face having suffered defeat from Taliban.Even after running away from the battlefield like cowards after tasting defeat from taliban ,Mr biden defends his foolish decision.
It seems that biden is indirectly hel China become a super power
Various high level Indian delegations are seeking taliban dialog.. Modijee is doing all he can to start a new Era after
Indian army under Modi and Pahady CDS Rawat has been reduced to a time pass army..taking part in a seemingly NONSENSICAL exercise....pathetic countries and then Pak and China will be watching from the sidelines over beer and beef steaks..and laughing at Indian army beating weaker opponents in war games.. what a farce
These exercises are very very formal and lack policy commitments. When any crisis occurs there won't be any tangible cooperation among these participants. Still India has not developed independent military stature
I think india is doing the right thing
India should support Russia till someone like trump comes in USA
