Indian Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane says India expects stability from neighbouring countries on regional security.
During a discussion with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa this morning, General Naravane said nearly 1,000 officers of the Sri Lanka Army will receive military training in India annually.
The Indian Army Chief informed President Rajapaksa that in addition to the aforementioned training, steps will be also taken to provide a specially designed training course for 50 soldiers in the near future at the request of Commander of the Army General Shavendra Silva.
President Rajapaksa meanwhile commended the leadership imparted to Sri Lankan military personnel through the Indian military exercise.
General Naravane, who is on a five-day goodwill visit to Sri Lanka, is scheduled to attend the 38th anniversary celebrations of the Saliyapura Gajaba Regiment tomorrow.
