Can Indian & Pakistani Troops ‘Peacefully’ Participate In Anti-Terror Drills In Russia?



While Indian and Pakistani forces are almost in a war-like situation on the Line of Control, on the other hand, teams from Indian and Pakistani Army will be joining hands for a multilateral anti-terror drill in Russia.

Both India and Pakistan will be a part of TSENTR-2019, a multilateral exercise in which armies of eight nations will participate. After the Pulwama attacks, this is the first time the two nations will be a part of any joint military drill.

Indian Army in a statement explained that these joint exercises will be focusing on evolving drills to find ways to counter the scourge of international terrorism thereby ascertaining military security in the Central Asian region.

This joint exercise is taking place under the flagship of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) and will be a 15 day-long joint drill. Counter-terrorism operations, aerial strikes, defence measures and reconnaissance missions will be among the top agendas of TSENTR-2019.

Apart from Russia, India and Pakistan the other nations which are participating in this exercise include China, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. The contingents have already left for Russia to participate in this strategic exercise aimed at tackling global terrorism which has indeed become a global problem.

Even though India and Pakistan are participating in the joint exercise, the bilateral relations between two nations are tense after the special status of Jammu and Kashmir was abrogated by the Modi government. After the abrogation of Article 370, Pakistan decided to downgrade diplomatic ties with India and has allegedly mobilized its elite commandos to put pressure on India.

Experts talking to EurAsian Times stated that even in these testing times, both armies are expected to maintain professionalism and discipline during the joint drills as both armies have strong experience of working together including in the UN missions.
