Georgia, Azerbaijan and Türkiye have launched this year’s trilateral military exercise Caucasus Eagle with the aim of sharing experience, improving professional capacity and management in a multinational environment, the Georgian defence ministry said on Tuesday.
Hosted in Georgia, the manoeuvres will involve special forces sharing their experience with each other within fire and medical training, and scenarios of special operations in populated areas, the state body said.
A special purpose training centre in the village of Mukhrovani in Georgia’s eastern Sagarejo municipality hosted the launch of the drills.
Brigadier general Irakli Chichinadze, the deputy commander of the Georgian Defence Forces, and colonel Teimuraz Klateishvili, the commander of the special operations forces, addressed participants of the exercises.
The drills have been hosted by Georgia since 2017.
