SHILLONG (PTI): Aiming to host foreign armies in joint exercises, the Indian Army has launched an independent and fully-integrated Joint Training Node (JTN) at Umroi cantonment here.

The JTN is the first of its kind in eastern command and is different from other joint training centres in Belgaum, Varangte and Bakloh, an Army official said.

"The concept was envisaged keeping in mind the conducive weather terrain offering optimal training environment, and has been developed at par with training centres of leading armies of the world," Army spokesperson Sunit Newton said in a statement on Saturday.

He said the JTN is ready to host the Bangladesh Army, and exercises with Myanmar and Chinese armies are planned for next year.

The Army has chosen the Umroi cantonment for the JTN keeping mind its proximity to Guwahati and the Shillong airports, the statement said.

The node was completed in "record one-year time" to host 'Exercise Milap', a multi-nation joint training exercise with the Bangladesh Army by the Red Horn Division, under the aegis of the Gajraj Corps, Newton said.

The JTN will pave away for projecting the states of Meghalaya and Assam on the world map of foreign armies, he added.
