May 15: General Manoj Pande, the Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) proceeded on a visit to Egypt from 16 to 17 May 2023. During the visit, the Army Chief will be meeting the Country’s senior military leadership where he will discuss avenues for further enhancing Indo-Egypt defence relations. He will be visiting various Egyptian Armed Forces establishments and exchanging ideas on issues of mutual interest.

The Army Chief will interact with the Commander-in-Chief of the Egyptian Armed Forces, the Minister of Defence & Military Production, and the Chief of Staff, of the Egyptian Armed Forces. He will also engage in extensive discussions with the Chief of the Egyptian Armed Force Operations Authority.

The Military relations of India with Egypt are on the rise which was evident during India’s 74th Republic Day parade, wherein the Egyptian Armed Forces contingent made their first appearance, besides the Egyptian President Abdeh Fattah El-Sisi being the Chief Guest for the parade. Notably, Indian and Egyptian Armies conducted the first-ever joint exercise between the Special Forces named “Ex Cyclone-I” in January this year.

The visit of the COAS will further deepen the bilateral relationships between the two Armies and act as a catalyst for closer coordination and cooperation between the two countries on a host of strategic issues.
