Military Exercise ‘Sagarmatha Friendship’

IAS Prelims 2023

The first Nepal-China joint military exercise ‘Sagarmatha Friendship-2017’ concluded in Kathmandu.

The ‘Sagarmatha’ is the Nepalese name of Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak.

This ten-day military exercise was organized in the Military Training School, Maharajganj, Nepal.

This military exercise is being done to combat terrorism and disaster management.  Significantly, Nepal has been practicing such a military experiment with India and America for a long time. But his military practice with China is indicating India’s diplomatic failure.
