Itanagar, Feb 8 (IANS) Two Bangladesh Army officers visited the Army Aqua Nodal Centre in Arunachal Pradesh for four days for training in white-water rafting, defence officials said on Monday.

Defence spokesman Lt Col P. Khongsai said Indian Army officials briefed the Bangladeshi officers in detail about the white-water rafting node including the establishment of the node, conduct of training, courses and other issues relating to the functioning of the node.

He said that the four-day visit from February 3-6 at Bogdo village in Along under West Siang District, proved fruitful for the delegation as they were given exposure to the aqua node and were satisfied with the support extended by the Indian Army which would facilitate them for setting up a similar adventure node in Bangladesh.

The visit highlights the friendly relations between the two nations and would go a long way in planning joint adventure events in the future, Lt Col Khongsai said. There are several white-water rafting training nodal centres in the Army in different parts of the country and this is one of the most thrilling sports.

Besides conducting several white-water rafting expeditions, Army rafters have won national championships and represented India in World Cup Rafting Championships.

OMG civilians pay for such things as entertainment. Gov't employees think it is work and complex study.

This is a good ploy to create an illusion of "extensive military cooperation" to keep the Indian media and state machinery entertained while all critical training and equipment come from other countries.

These activities make it quite difficult for Indians to turn around and call Bangladesh unfriendly.

one word of advise for BD army, while in the middle of the river on fully loaded raft, please never never never ever say the name "Pakistan" or your teacher(s) will jump off the raft and run and if that happens i hope your soldiers have learned enough of rafting.
