Nepal Army is known in the world for its growing role in international peacekeeping. Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Rajendra Chhetri is visiting Canada and UAE to further enhance the organization's relations with the armies of these two countries.

COAS General Chhetri left for Canada on 2 September to attend the Annual Chiefs of Defense (CHOD) Conference - 2017. Co-hosted by the Canadian Forces and the United States Pacific Command (US PACOM), the conference began on September 4 and was ended on September 6, 2017, in Victoria, Canada.

After the CHOD conference, COAS Gen Chhetri is scheduled to visit United Arab Emirates (UAE) on an official invitation from Chief of Staff of UAE Armed Forces Lieutenant General Hamad Mohammed Thani Al Rumaithi.

Chief of General Staff (CGS) Lt Gen Baldevraj Mahat bade farewell to COAS Gen Chhetri at Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA). Prior to his departure to Canada, COAS Gen Chhetri was accorded a Guard of Honor from a troop of Nepalese Army at TIA. General officers of the NA and defense attachés of various nations in Nepal were present during the occasion.

This kind of visit will not only enhance Army to Army relations but it will also enhance Nepal’s relations with those countries.
