India, Japan to kick off joint military exercise today

| @indiablooms | 17 Feb 2023, 02:38 pm

New Delhi: The 4th edition of joint military exercise, “Ex Dharma Guardian”, between India and Japan is being conducted at Camp Imazu in Shiga province, Japan from Feb 17 to Mar 2.

Notably, in the series of military training exercises undertaken by India with various countries, Exercise Dharma Guardian which is an annual training event with Japan, is crucial and significant in terms of security challenges faced by both nations in the backdrop of current global situation.

The scope of this exercise covers platoon level joint training on operations in jungle and semi urban/urban terrain.

Troops of the Garhwal Rifles Regiment of the Indian Army and an Infantry Regiment from the Middle Army of the Japan Ground Self Defence Force (JGSDF) are participating in the exercise this year to share experiences gained during operations in order to enhance inter-operability in planning & execution.

The Indian Army contingent arrived at the exercise location on 12 February 2023 where they were accorded a warm reception.

The joint exercise will enable the two armies to share best practices in tactics, techniques and procedures of conducting tactical operations under a UN Mandate, in addition to developing inter-operability, bonhomie, camaraderie and friendship between the two armies.

The training will focus primarily on high degree of physical fitness and sharing of drills at the tactical level. During the exercise, participants will engage in a variety of missions ranging from joint planning, joint tactical drills, basics of establishing integrated surveillance grids, including employment of aerial assets.

The joint exercise will facilitate both armies to know each other better, share their wide experiences and enhance their situational awareness.

“Exercise Dharma Guardian” will further enhance the level of defence co-operation between Indian Army and Japanese Ground Self Defence Forces, furthering the bilateral relations between the two nations.
