After India, Uzbek Troops Hold Joint Drills With Turkish Armed Forces

A Turkish Armed Forces joint military exercise with Uzbek troops started Monday in the southern Uzbek city of Tirmiz.

According to an Uzbek Defense Ministry statement, an opening ceremony was held for drills with the presence of special force units of both countries’ military officials.

During the exercises, soldiers of the two countries will take part in a variety of drills, including crossing a 15-kilometer special tactic corridor, special shooting, close combat, and survival in harsh conditions.

In addition to the special tactics training, the participating soldiers will also hold joint sports events.

Turkish Chief of General Staff Gen. Yasar Guler will arrive in Uzbekistan on Tuesday and follow the joint exercises on March 25. The joint drills, held in line with the countries’ military cooperation plan, will continue through March 27.

Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, India concluded a joint military exercise with Uzbekistan to help the latter enhance its counter-terrorism capabilities as the Central Asian country is facing a growing ISIS threat.

The ‘DUSTLIK’ exercise was held from March 10 to March 19 at the Foreign Training Node in Chaubatia near Ranikhet town in India’s northern Uttarakhand state. This is the second edition of the annual joint exercise of the two armies
