Jaisalmer: Indian Army and Egyptian Army’s joint exercise known as Cyclone 2023 has commenced its special heliborne operations at Jaisalmer in Rajasthan.

Taking to Twitter, the Additional Directorate General of Public Information said, “Exercise #Cyclone 2023 #SpecialForces troops of #IndianArmy and #EgyptArmy exercised Special Heliborne Operations during the ongoing joint exercise at #Jaisalmer.”

It is pertinent to mention that Cyclone 2023 is the first-ever exercise that took place between the special forces of the Indian Army and the Egyptian Army.

The 14-day-long exercise which is being carried out in the deserts of Rajasthan engages both the contingents to advance special forces skills such as Sniping, Combat Free Fall, Reconnaissance, Surveillance and Target Designation, sharing of information on weapons, equipment, innovations, tactics, techniques and procedures.

The participants would also undertake joint planning and drills for Special Forces operations in a mechanised warfare setting as well as surgical strikes on terrorist camps/hideouts to include sniping of High-Value Targets.

India and Egypt, two of the oldest civilizations in the world, have a long history of close engagement. Egypt is a key actor in development with a population of about 110 million, a location that straddles Africa and Asia, and a metropolis that houses the League of Arab States. Additionally, India has had a very close relationship with this nation ever since gaining its independence. Given that the two nations jointly founded the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in the 1950s, this is only logical.

As a result of the Russia-Ukraine crisis and the COVID pandemic, India and Egypt are becoming ever more unified. Additionally, both nations have already shown their compassion toward one another by assisting one another in times of need.

All Indians greatly appreciated Egypt’s prompt delivery of 300,000 Remdesivir doses in May 2021 during the devastating second wave of Covid-19 that severely affected India. In return, Egypt provided wheat in 2022 to help Egypt, the world’s largest importer of wheat, get through supply-side disruptions.

Egypt has a wheat crisis due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict because 80% of its wheat imports come from these two countries. The Egyptian Cabinet then said that India had been added to the list of nations authorised to provide Egypt with wheat in 2022, which provided a boost to bilateral relations.

Egypt’s economy grew more quickly from 2017 through 2019 but then slowed down in 2020 and 2021 as a result of numerous global shocks. Now, Egypt may help the economy recover by collaborating with developing nations like India. Without impairing its sovereignty or ideology, Egypt may find a much more dependable development partner in India, who would also guarantee economic prosperity based on mutual trust, friendship, and cooperation for the benefit of all.

Critical mass is already being reached in the ambitious ambition to transform the Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZONE) into a powerhouse for global industry. The main drivers of such a huge investment are enticing tax advantages, the advantageous location, and free trade agreements that allow it simple to access the European markets. India can utilise

Egypt can collaborate with India in the development of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The role of ICT in developing the national economy of India has attracted Cairo’s attention. The sector contributes about 8 per cent of the total GDP in India. This high growth in the IT sector is the result of public-private participation, especially the Indian government’s efforts to support education and training, and encourage entrepreneurship in the fields of information and communication technology.

The recent visit of Amr Talaat, Minister of Communications and Information Technology to India reflects Cairo’s intention in seeking cooperation with the Indian information technology sector. Egypt seeks cooperation with India in the field of communications and information technology, especially in areas related to digital transformation, the electronics industry, building digital capabilities for youth, research and development, and cyber security.

“With potential collaboration in the areas of defence, security, counterterrorism, industrialization, medicines, and food security, Egypt and India are steadily establishing themselves as ideal strategic and economic allies. India released Egypt from its recent wheat ban, and the two countries increased their pharmaceutical cooperation “the Middle East Institute’s non-resident scholar and Egyptian analyst Mohammed Soliman, who is currently a manager at the global strategy firm McLarty Associates based in Washington, says.
