Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa has offered Sri Lanka’s help to train Indian army personnel in counter-insurgency warfare.

The offer was made during the visit of the Indian army chief General Bikram Singh to Sri Lanka in the third week of December. 

Asked specifically if he envisaged Indians coming to Lankan military institutions for training, in the same way as more than 800 Lankan officers were going to Indian military institutions every year, Defence Secretary said that military training could mean attending courses or participating in joint exercises, or both, but with India, joint exercises were more likely.

In 2010, visiting Indian Defence Secretary Pradeep Kumar had proposed that the SINEX series of naval exercises be made a regular feature and it was accepted by Sri Lanka.
