India and Mongolia Need Increased Cooperation
Dec 24, 2014

A Mongolian delegation led by the Head of General Authority on Border Protection (GABP) of Mongolia, Brig. Gen. Lkhachinjav visted India recently. Both sides stressed the need of increased cooperation for effective prevention and detection of crime with the growth of global terrorism, transnational crimes like Drug Trafficking, Smuggling of Illegal Arms & Ammunition.

During the talks India assured all possible help to GABP like assistance in capacity building in the areas of Special operations, Cyber Security, Information Technology and Computers, Weapons and Tactics, Bomb Disposal, Disaster Management etc., and stated that India can train GABP Mongolia officers in these areas. India also stated that it can help GABP in building capacity by Trainer Development programmes so that they can impart skills to other members of GABP in Mongolia itself.

Both GABP and BSF work in similar terrains and face similar challenges and both the forces can learn from the best practices in border management followed by each force. Border management in high altitude and cold regions and deserts can be one of the areas of focus.

India said that both nations can help each other in better management of borders through exchange of Technology, Equipment and Methodology of border Management. For this there is a need of joint exercises between GABP and BSF in Operational, Training and Technology Exchange.
