BIKANER (PTI): A 72-hour validation exercise, which was conducted as part of the ongoing 'Exercise Shakti 2019' between Indian and French armies, has concluded in Rajasthan's Bikaner.

The validation exercise, which began on November 10, was conducted in Bikaner's Mahajan field firing ranges.

It focussed on operations in counter-terrorism environment under the United Nations mandate and culminated with a 36-hour-long outdoor training in the harsh desert terrain, Defence spokesperson Colonel Sombit Ghosh said in a release on Tuesday.

The exercise was planned to learn about terrorists' modus operandi, methods for intelligence acquisition, proficiency in joint planning, surprise and deception measures and waning collateral damage, he said.

The Indian and French contingents worked in a seamless and integrated manner to carry out the joint operations, including the room intervention drill, Ghosh said.

Inter-operability with the highest professional standards and military ethos was on display by both the contingents, he said.

'Exercise Shakti 2019' will conclude on Wednesday.

The biennial exercise, which is conducted alternately in India and France, began in 2011.
