JAMMU: Lt Gen Ranbir Singh, Army Commander Northern Command interacted with the Indian Army contingent which is going to participate in Exercise Al Nagah III, third in the series of bilateral Army to Army joint exercise between India and Oman.

The Exercise  is scheduled to be held from 12 March to 25 March 2019 at Jabel Al Akhdar mountains. The exercise will see both the Armies exchanging expertise and experience in Tactics, Weapon handling and Firing, thereby aiming to enhance interoperability in Anti-Terrorist Operations in semi urban mountainous terrain.

India - Oman bilateral security ties have continued to develop since the beginning of India - Oman Joint Military Cooperation meetings in 2006, underscoring the growing bilateral military and strategic partnership between two important nations of Indian Ocean Region (IOR).

The Indian Army contingent is going to be represented by 04 Officers, 09 Junior Commissioned Officers and 47 Other Ranks of The Garhwal Rifles Regiment. Similar strength is also to be fielded by Jabel Regiment of Royal Army of Oman (RAO). Observer delegation comprising senior officers of both the Armies will witness the validation demonstration to be held on 25 March 2019.

From times immemorial India and Oman have been partners in trade, commerce and culture. The vast presence of Indian expats contributes to the economic development of both the nations. Relationship between both the nations assumes special significance with IOR fast turning out to be the nerve centre of trade, commerce and energy security between East and West. The exercise will go a long way in enhancing understanding of capabilities and strengthening camaraderie between both the Armies.
