Army contingents of India and Kazakhstan commenced joint training in peacekeeping operations in New Delhi as the Kazakhstan Army prepared for their first ever peacekeeping deployment under the UN umbrella in the United Nations Interim Force In Lebanon (UNIFIL). The joint training programme christened as KINPOT (Kazakhstan India Peacekeeping Operation Training) is being held from March 19-April 13. 
 
About 30 personnel each from Kazakhstan and Indian armies are participating in the joint training. India is one of the largest contributors to UN peacekeeping. 
 
For the first time troops of both Kazakh and Indian armies will be deployed together in Lebanon. The training curriculum is designed to achieve seamless integration of troops of both armies and to enhance their respective operational capacities. The programme will also cover the process of  both the army personnel getting to know each other's social norms and cultural practices.
