On February 1 and 2, Turkey will hold military exercises in Kars, in which #Azerbaijan will also take part, Interfax Azerbaijan reported, citing Haberturk.
According to Haberturk, Azerbaijani troops will take part in the special shooting training of these military exercises.
“The objective of the military exercises is to ensure cooperation and coordination when conducting joint operations, to test the efficiency of armaments and vehicles,” the respective statement reads
The Winter 2021 Drill will take place between Feb. 1 and Feb. 12, and will also feature domestically developed weaponry and equipment.
According to the report, the drill will mostly focus on operational capabilities during the harsh weather conditions of winter months, including practices of sheltering, reinforcement, maintenance and educational development.
