The Indian and Bangladeshi Armies have begun a 14-day joint military exercise, Sampriti-II, in northeastern Sylhet, Bangladesh.

The exercise is intended to deepen military ties and cooperation between the two nations and will involve practising counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations under the UN mandate.

Press Trust of India has quoted an army spokesman as saying: "This is the second phase of ‘Op Sampriti’ which is aimed to develop professional expertise of both the armies and strengthen military to military relationship."

Around 40 troops of the Indian elite 21 Para (Special Forces) battalion will participate alongside Bangladeshi Para Commando battalions in the exercise.

The first India-Bangladesh joint military exercise, Sampriti-I, was held in November 2010.
