The next edition of the Sino-Indian joint military exercises is unlikely to take place this year as well. India and China have so far held two rounds of joint military exercises in 2007 and 2008. But in the three succeeding years after that, there were no joint exercises. “Any scheduling in 2012 of the third edition of the joint exercise looks highly unlikely,” said sources. Sources added that the Indian Army is already scheduled to hold exercises this year with a few other countries and that there is no likelihood of any exercise with China this year.

“The specifics of conducting the third edition of the exercises was not discussed during the Annual Defence Dialogue (ADD) that took place in December last year. But the holding of the ADD itself indicates improvement in defence ties,” said a source.

There are several reasons why the next edition of the joint exercise could not take place in the past three years after it started off promisingly in 2007 and 2008. The first edition took place in Kunming, China, in 2007. The second edition took place in Belgaum, Karnataka, in 2008.

In 2009, the Chinese told India that they were busy with the 60th anniversary of the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in October that year. India then expressed confidence that the exercises would take place in 2010.

During this period, there were several controversies over frequent Chinese border troop transgressions into Indian territory (in J&K) that worsened ties.

In 2010, China refused to grant permission to the then chief of the J&K-based Army Northern Command to visit China. This resulted in suspension of defence exchanges between the two countries. In 2011, following Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s visit, the two countries decided to resume defence exchanges.

In December, 2011, the much awaited annual defence dialogue (ADD) took place between the two countries. But just recently, China once again created a controversy by objecting to defence minister A.K. Antony’s visit to Arunachal Pradesh.

Ohh we will miss the High IQ chinese :lol:
their "high IQ" shows up only when it is tested under the nose of CPC.

.. and they pretend that when the go on a foreign trip, the CPC forces them to leave the "high IQ" behind.

After all, the evil foreigners should not be given a chance to steal the "high IQ". :laugh:

No need to share any operational information with the most dangerous potential enemy of the Republic. That's right I said it.

India's counterinsurgency isn't exactly successful though.
the discussion on Indias insurgencies and there status can be discussed elsewhere but obviously our training facilities are capable enough to attract foreign countries forces like Russia,France,America,etc to schools like CIJWS and Indian army also has prestigious mountain warfare training schools like HAWS and Parbat Ghatak school which have also seen foreign forces being trained there.
