It has become a good, reliable, reliable tradition to jointly conduct exercises and measures to curb terrorist activities. Starting today, we are starting joint exercises on working out the issues of anti-terrorism activities in the territory of the Russian Federation, the Republic of India and in general in world territory. Our main task is to work through all the issues, not to create prerequisites and prevent the death and activities of terrorist organizations,said at the ceremony, Deputy Commander of the Military Air Force Sergei Solomatin.
The ceremony ended with a solemn raising of national flags to the sounds of the hymns of both countries.
Recently, 300 troops arrived in India to take part in the ground component of the exercise. In addition, on Thursday, two naval ships of the Indian Navy entered the port: the frigate Satpura and the corvette Kadmatt.

The maneuvers will last until October 19.
