JAMMU (PTI): The troops of Indian and Oman armies on Sunday concluded their exercise 'Al-Nagah-II 2017' in Bakloh belt of Himachal Pradesh which was aimed at strengthening the military ties between the two countries.

During the 14-day joint exercise, the troops of the two armies shared expertise in counter-insurgency and other operations in various terrains like snow-bound areas and dense woods.

The exercise of the Indian Army and the Royal Army of Oman was declared closed by Major General Naveen Kumar Airy of the Indian Army at Bakloh on Sunday, PRO Defence Lt Col Manish Mehta said.

In his closing remarks, Airy, after addressing the participating contingents, appreciated the professional conduct of the training which has resulted in instilling confidence in each other's capability.
