First Russia-Pakistan military exercise Druzhba-2016 begins
26 September 2016 Current Affairs GK: The first military exercise between Russia and Pakistan named Druzhba-2016 (Friendship-2016) has kicked off in Pakistan. 

With this, Pakistani Army and Russian Ground Forces (RGF) have come together for the first time in military exercises reflecting growing military ties between two former Cold War rivals.

The military exercise is taking place at the Army High Altitude School in northern Pakistan’s Rattu and at a special forces training centre in Cherat. 

The two week long joint military drills aims at bolstering and building military cooperation between the two countries.

 It will involve experience sharing and develop coordination in carrying out practice combat tasks in a mountainous environment, including operations against illegal armed groups. 

About 200 troops from the two countries will take part in the two-week long military drills. Of them around 70 personnel will be from Russia’s Southern Military District (SMD).
