The 14th edition of the Indo-US Joint Special Forces exercise "Vajra Prahar 2023" concluded recently at the Joint Training Node in Meghalaya.

US Envoy to India Eric Garcetti thanked India for hosting the exercise this year.

"Congratulations to @USArmyand @adgpi Special Forces on the successful conclusion of the 14th edition of our joint military exercise #VajraPrahar at Umroi, Meghalaya," he posted on X.

"Bilateral joint military exercises like these not only elevate the #USIndiaDefense partnership to new heights but also reinforce interoperability through the exchange of top-notch practices. Special thanks to India for hosting this year’s exercise," the American envoy said.

India and the USA's Joint Special Forces exercise 'Vajra Prahar 2023' began at the Joint Training Node in Meghalaya's Umroi region last month.

The US contingent was represented by personnel from the 1st Special Forces Group (SFG) of US Special Forces.

The Indian Army contingent was led by Special Forces personnel from the Eastern Command.

Exercise Vajra Prahar 2023 is a joint exercise conducted between the Indian Army and US Army Special Forces.

"It aims at sharing best practices and experiences in areas such as joint mission planning and operational tactics," read a statement issued earlier by the Indian government.

The first edition was conducted in the year 2010 in India and the 13th edition of the Indo-US Joint Special Forces exercise was conducted at the Special Forces Training School (SFTS), Bakloh (HP).
