SHILLONG (PTI): The week-long army warfare exercise by India and Myanmar, the first to be held in the country, began on Monday at the Joint Warfare Centre at Umroi near here, officials said.

The exercise code-named India-Myanmar Bilateral Army Exercise (IMBAX) is aimed at building and promoting closer relations with armies of the neighbouring countries, they said.

The six-day training exercise also aims to train the officers of Myanmar Army in various United Nations Peacekeeping roles and tasks, the statement said.

The training curriculum will enable the participants of Myanmar Army with the requisite knowledge and skills to meet the evolving challenges of peacekeeping operations in accordance with principles, policies and guidelines of the United Nations.

At the exercise, 15 officers from the Myanmar Army and 16 officers from Indian Army took part. They were welcomed by Red Horns Division GOC Major General PS Behl, Army spokesperson said in a statement.

The Indo-Myanmar joint Army Exercise is a positive step in the bilateral relations between the two neighbouring nations, the statement said.

The conduct of such exercises in future will not only enable mutual capacity enhancement, but will assist in building strong bonds of friendship and cooperation between India and Myanmar, it added.

A week-long Indo-Bangla army exercise concluded at the Centre last week.
