India agrees to help the Sri Lankan Army in its capacity building by opening up more seats for its officers and men in its training academies and military colleges, apart from sharing experiences in counter-insurgency operations.

The agreements were reached during the first structured army-to-army talks held in New Delhi. Apart from deciding to enhance the scope and number of training courses for Sri Lankan officers and men, the Indian Army will also share its experience and organizational structure for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.

In the inaugural army-to-army staff talks, which began Wednesday, the two sides also shared their expertise in battle concepts and doctrines, particularly in tackling insurgency.
