Multinational exercise Eternal Brotherhood-II begins

RAWALPINDI: The multinational special forces exercise titled “Eternal Brotherhood-II” has started at Barotha on Tuesday.

According to a statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), special forces contingents from Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Qatar, Turkiye, and Uzbekistan are participating in this two-week-long exercise.

General Syed Asim Munir, the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), paid a visit to the Barotha Garrison, where he engaged with the participating troops. During this visit, the army chief received a briefing from the General Officer Commanding the Special Service Group, outlining the exercise’s scope and objectives.

The primary objective of this exercise is to further strengthen the long-standing military relationships among friendly nations. It involves the development of joint employment concepts and the identification of areas of mutual interest for future military cooperation. Additionally, it aims to capitalize on the collective experience of these nations in counter-terrorism efforts, as highlighted by the military’s media wing.

Before visiting Barotha, General Asim Munir also made a stop at the Junior Leadership Academy (JLA) in Shinkiari, known as the Center of Excellence for the training of Non-Commissioned Officers (NCOs). There, he paid his respects at the Yadgaar-e-Shuhada and addressed the academy’s participants.

COAS emphasized the crucial role played by junior leaders within the Pakistan Army, recognizing them as the backbone of the force, essential for both conventional and unconventional warfare. He lauded the high standards of professionalism and leadership exhibited by Pakistan Army junior leaders in various training, operational, and international competition settings.

Upon his arrival at the Junior Leadership Academy and Barotha, COAS was received by the Inspector General Training & Evaluation.
