A two-week multinational exercise involving special forces from Türkiye, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Qatar, and Uzbekistan concluded in northwest Pakistan on Sunday, Anadolu Agency reports.

The “Eternal Brotherhood-II” exercise was begun on Sept. 17 in Brotha, in the northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

The exercise was aimed at further harnessing the historic military-to-military relations amongst brotherly countries, as well as helping to nurture joint employment concepts against counter-terrorism and identifying areas of mutual interest for future military collaborations, according to a statement from the Pakistan Army.

Lieutenant General Azhar Hassan Hayat, commander of Pakistan Army’s 11th Corps, and officers from the armies of the participating countries attended the closing ceremony.

On the final day, special forces from participating countries demonstrated their professional excellence.
