In the United States, Montana is hosting the Regional Cooperation 23 exercise with the participation of military personnel from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and the United States, INTERFAX writes with reference to the US Central Command website.
It is noted that the exercises from the United States involved personnel from all over the country, including soldiers and pilots from Arizona, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana and the Virginia National Guard.
“The exercises are aimed at strengthening relations between the participating countries, as well as increasing the potential and opportunities for joint work,” the message says.
More than 230 participants in the Fort Harrison exercise are reported to first build a military decision process or MDMP knowledge base, and then, after the events officially begin, personnel from the United States and partner countries jointly respond to an international security threat.
“RC23 participants will face scenarios designed to enhance regional security and stability, increase national capabilities, hone methods and procedures to interdict weapons of mass destruction, terrorist elements and drugs, and increase interoperability and information sharing,” the site says.
Before that, at the end of July, within the framework of the state program of the Partnership of the Office of the National Guard of the US Department of Defense, the military personnel of the Virginia National Guard in the Romit Gorge of Tajikistan exchanged knowledge on combat climbing with the soldiers of Tajikistan. Virginia and Tajikistan have been partners in this program since 2003.
