NEW DELHI (PTI): Special forces of India and Sri Lanka are carrying out joint wargames for 21 days at Nahan in Himachal Pradesh.

The elite forces of the two countries are engaged in wargames which started on December 3 and is scheduled to get over on December 24 at the Special Forces Training Centre in Nahan, Army officials said.

The two countries are expected to share their experiences in counter terrorism operations of the last two-three decades, they said.

The Sri Lankan commandos are believed to be one of the best in the business as they were actively involved in the over 25-year-old-war with LTTE cadres.

The exercises were earlier scheduled to be held somewhere in the southern part of the country but later the venue was shifted probably in view of the sensitivities involved there, they said.

The Indian Defence Ministry has decided that it will continue to train Sri Lankan defence personnel at its facilities and have military ties with the Lankan forces.

The Navy also plans to hold the 'SLINEX' exercises with their Sri Lankan counterparts but it would be held away from the coastline with Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.
