Kathmandu: Amid tensions between India and China, India has given a big blow to China. China’s diplomacy, which often provokes Nepal against India, did not work. India and Nepal will organize the 16th joint military training exercise ‘Surya Kiran’ from Friday to further strengthen the friendly relations between the armies of the two countries.
An Indian Army contingent reached Nepal on Wednesday to take part in a military exercise. The exercise will take place at Saljhandi in Roopnadehi near the Indo-Nepal border. The Indian Embassy in Kathmandu tweeted on Wednesday, “Indian Army contingent participates in 16th Indo-Nepal Military Exercise ‘Surya Kiran’. Reached Saljhandi, Nepal today to participate in
The exercise is a paradigm shift in sharing professional experiences and strengthening friendship between the armies of the two countries.” Earlier, the 15th edition of this exercise was organized at Pithoragarh in which 650 soldiers from both countries participated.
Indian Army Chief Manoj Pandey visited Nepal last September. During this visit, General Pandey was honored by President Bidya Devi Bhandari by conferring the honorary title of General of the Nepalese Army. There is an 1850 km long border between Nepal and India which passes through Sikkim, West Bengal, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and Uttarakhand.
