ALABINO /Moscow region/, July 30. /TASS/. International Army Games 2016 are expected to facilitate strengthening of international cooperation among the armed forces of various countries, Iranian Maj Gen Vali Madani, a member of the panel of judges at the Games, told reporters on Saturday.
"Iran’s Armed Forces are in good relations with Russia. We are sure the completions will strengthen them more," Madani said, noting Iranian servicemen were newcomers at the Army Games although "they have fought in real battles and undergone proper training."
"The competitions are held at very high level. We are grateful to Russia for holding these very significant competitions. We are looking forward to winning them," he said in conclusion.
The Games are scheduled to take place between July 30 and August 13 simultaneously at 20 training grounds, where 19 of them are at three military districts: Western, Southern and Central: from Siberia to Kaliningrad in the west and from St. Petersburg to Sevastopol in Crimea. Naval competitions are to be in the waters of the Baltic, Black and Caspian Seas. This year, unlike in previous years, the Games take place in two countries - in Russia and in Kazakhstan.
The Games’ program has 23 competitions in field, air and marine training. Eleven countries have sent over their representatives to observe the competitions.
