The US and Nepal initiated a special operations training exercise wherein forces of the two countries will train collaboratively to prepare for humanitarian aid and disaster response emergencies in rural, mountainous zones.
After the training exercise “Balance Nail 17-3” took place at the Chhauni Barracks in Kathmandu, the American mission gave a regional crisis management centre built by its assistance to the Nepal army.
Joint training between the US Army Special Forces and the Nepal Mahabir Rangers has roots spanning over a decade.
This training will help improve the Nepal Army’s ability to work alongside government institutions, civilians, NGOs, and INGOs in the event of emergencies, whether at home in Nepal or when implementing UN Peacekeeping Operations abroad.
