According to Karibayev, such exercises have a long history, dating back to the establishment of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO). In his closing remarks, the colonel wished strength, courage, and determination to participants, and encouraged them to improve their theoretical and practical skills in the course of carrying out combat training tasks.
The exercise commenced with the anthems performance and flag-raising ceremonies of the two countries. The training will continue until June 28, as servicemen from Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan are expected to work on practical exercises related to combat interaction.
On behalf of the Ministry of Defense of the Kyrgyz Republic, the commander of the detachment, Captain Nurtay Talaybek uulu, expressed gratitude to the military leadership of Kazakhstan for their role in organizing the exercise and for their warm welcome of the contingent of the Kyrgyz Armed Forces.

I would like to wish all of us a successful joint exercise, which will serve to strengthen international cooperation and make a great contribution to the exchange of experience between the servicemen of the two countries," he noted.
The joint exercise will be conducted at the Teris Ashchybulak training center and in the Karatau Mountains valley. The mixed contingent will be tasked with locating and neutralizing a conventional enemy, who is attempting to destabilize the region.
