Washington, DC – The US joined India to bring soldiers from both the armies for an exercise Yudh Abhyas 14 this week, in and around the area of Ranikhet Cantonment, Utterakhand, India, approximately 200 miles northeast of Delhi according to the Pentagon officials.

During the exercise from September 17-30 while the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be visiting the US from September 26-30, both sides are scheduled to plan and execute a series of tactical drills which may be encountered on UN peace-keeping missions, the official told India America Today.

The US Army Pacific-sponsored exercise involving approximately 300 US service members is geared toward enhancing cooperation and coordination through training and cultural exchanges which help build skills and relationships necessary during a peacekeeping operation, the official said, adding, “This marks the 10th iteration of this exercise.”

Yudh Abhyas 14 provides excellent opportunities for professional and cultural exchanges that will expand common ground through shared learning and training, which will enhance friendships between participating members and both countries. Training includes expert academic exchanges and professional workshops focused on addressing current topics pertaining to regional security, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, and special operations forces.

Expert academic exchanges will be ongoing throughout the exercise, while simultaneous field training and command post exercises are taking place, the sources noted.
