New Delhi: Armies of India and the United States will carry out a two-week long mega military exercise in Washington from September 14 at a time when tensions are rising in the Asia Pacific region.

The aim of the annual exercise “Yudh Abhyas” is to further strengthen ‘jointmanship’ and facilitate interoperability between the two armies to meet any unforeseen contingency across the globe, the Indian Army said.
