Britain's army chief says his country and India will hold their first ever joint military exercises next year.
General Mike Jackson made the announcement on Thursday as he ended a two-day visit to Indian-controlled Kashmir.
He said British and Indian armed forces have close ties and the exercises are intended to make them closer.
During his trip, General Jackson visited the Line of Control, which divides Kashmir between India and Pakistan. Both countries claim the region for themselves, and more than 60,000 people have been killed in clashes in the dispute.
