Army Chief General MM Naravane will embark on a four-day visit to United Kingdom and Italy from 5 July.

During the first leg of his tour, General Naravane will visit the UK wherein he will be meeting with their Chief of Defence Staff, Chief of General Staff, the Minister of State for Defence among others.

Both India and UK share strong historical ties and in 2004, this was converted into a strategic partnership.

The Army chief will be visiting Italy on 7 July, wherein he will be inaugurating Indian Army Memorial in the famous town of Cassino. He will be meeting the Chief of Defence Staff and Chief of Staff of the Italian Army.

In the Battle of Monte Cassino during World War II, over 5,000 Indian soldiers laid down their lives while fighting to save Italy from fascist forces. Nearly 50,000 Indians were enlisted for Italy’s liberation between September 1943 and April 1945.

Both the UK and Italy are important partners for India in the fields of defence, healthcare, aerospace, education, clean technology, renewable energy and information and communication technology among others, officials said. (Agencies)
