GSDF to conduct first joint drills with Indian Army in late October


The Ground Self-Defense Force will conduct joint antiterrorism drills with the Indian Army, starting later this month, Japan’s Defense Ministry’s Ground Staff Office has said.

The first joint exercises between Japan and India will take place in the northeastern India state of Mizoram between Oct. 27 and Nov. 18, the Ground Staff Office said Friday.

The drills are aimed at promoting bilateral cooperation, it added. The move is also apparently intended to counter China’s growing assertiveness in nearby areas.

A total of about 60 Japanese and Indian officers will participate in the drills, including in a hostage barricade scenario.  Read More
