Strategic allies India and Russia are set to boost their security ties, including sharing experience in training mountain troops and anti-terrorism efforts.
India, which has highly trained mountain troops, has agreed to exchange experience with Russia, currently in the process of raising mountain brigades in the restive Caucasian region, now the post-Communist nation's external frontiers in the south.
This issue was discussed yesterday during the Indian Army Chief, General Deepak Kapoor's parleys with his Russian host General Alexei Maslov, who is the Commander-in-Chief of the Land Forces.
"Gen. Maslov and his Indian colleague Gen. Kapoor agreed to establish a regular exchange of experience in training mountain troops," Land Forces spokesman Col. Igor Konashenkov said.
