Kathmandu, March 21

The 10-day advanced training in national security ended here today with the conclusion that not only the military, but also every class and community in society was responsible as far as the national interests and security matters were concerned.

The training organised with a view to developing a common view on security affairs among security agencies and bodies concerned was held at the Shivapuri-based Army Command and Staff College.

Matters relating to the country’s geo-politics and foreign policy, national security, army-civilian relations, use of collective efforts for humanitarian assistance during the time of disaster were the major agendas discussed during the training.

Government joint-secretaries, NA Brigadier General, Deputy Inspector General of Nepal Police, Armed Police Force and National Investigation Department were involved in the training, which was expected to be helpful in understanding various challenges to national security and its present situation and determining the security strategy.

Addressing the closing ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Defence Bhim Rawal said support from every sector in society was necessary to implement the national security policy.
