The 10 day long multinational military exercise named ‘Shantir Ogrosena’ culminated in Bangladesh on Monday, April 12 at the Bangabandhu Senanibas in Dhaka. Troops from India, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Sri Lanka participated in the exercise with observers from the USA, UK, Russia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Singapore.

The exercise was organised to pay tribute to Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman on his birth centenary and celebrate the golden jubilee of the liberation of Bangladesh.

The aim of the exercise was to strengthen defence ties and enhance interoperability amongst neighbourhood countries to ensure effective peacekeeping operations. The participating armies shared their experiences and enhanced their situational awareness through robust information exchange platforms, said the official press release issued on Monday.
