Shillong, Dec 26 (UNI) Altogether 13 soldiers from the Royal Cambodian Special force have arrived at the Indian Army's Counter Insurgency and Jungle Warfare School (CIJW), Vairengte, Mizoram, a defence release said today.

The Royal Cambodian Special force would undergo an intense four week course in Counter Insurgency and Terrorist Operations.

''Low intensity conflicts are going global. It is being believed that terrorism is becoming less territorially defined, global in reach and more decentralised,'' Brigadier R M Painuly said in the release.

He also stated that terrorist activities were no longer bound by geographical limits. Modern militancy has become a complex phenomenon.

''The world is not matched by a globalised militant ideology. We need to tackle the menace of terrorism and hence joint training is a step in global war on terrorism,'' he said.

The Royal Combodian Special Force are keen to learn from Indian Army's experience in combating insurgency for the last 50 years.

There could not have been a better staging ground for this exchange of expertise between the two forces, he said, adding CIJW fights the 'Guerrilla like a Guerrilla'.

The School trains all ranks of the Indian Armed Forces along with the Para Military and Central Police Organisations.

It is also going global by providing training to Army officers of Afghanistan, Bhutan, Botswana, Bangladesh, Nepal, Ghana, Iraq, Kenya, Mauritius, Singapore, Seychelles, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Myanmar, Kyzgystan, Mongolia, Uzbekistan and Nigeria.
