The war games, slated to be held during August 20-29 in the west-central Russian city Chelyabinsk, will see some 200 Indian Army and Air Force personnel displaying their might alongside their counterparts from the two neighbours, the Kyrgyz Republic, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, other than the host nation. The joint effort comes after Indian and Chinese troops faced off last year in the strategic India-China-Bhutan tri-junction of Doklam, and the 2016 surgical strikes on terror launchpads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir by India, which has been pushing for global action against the next-door neighbour for allowing terror havens to thrive on its territory.
