Pakistan, China, India to Participate in A Military Exercise

MOSCOW – Away from border hostilities, the military from Pakistan, China and India will jointly conduct exercises in Russia next month.
An Indian military contingent will participate next month in “Kavkaz 2020” (“Caucasus 2020”), a strategic command post exercise in which various countries, including China and Pakistan, will also participate.
The Indian contingent would include around 180 soldiers and officers from infantry, artillery, mechanized and armored forces as well as special forces, air defense and signals. The contingent troops would also include personnel from the Indian Navy and the Indian Air Force (IAF).
Sources said China is sending an army contingent and three ships as part of its naval deployment to the exercise.
The exercise to be held next month will include 19 countries, including host Russia, where more than 12,500 troops will participate.
In addition to members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which include India, China, Pakistan, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, 11 other countries will participate in the exercise.
The other countries involved in the exercises are Mongolia, Syria, Iran, Egypt, Belarus, Turkey, Armenia, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan.
The training will be held in the Astrakhan region in southern Russia from September 15-26.
The objective and scope of the exercise are to improve cooperation. The idea is for the military to prepare for joint action with units of foreign state armies.
All participating nations will be required to follow the COVID-19 protocols strictly.
After a COVID test, participants will spend 14 days before departure in quarantine and will be tested again on arrival.
