    The delegation, led by Maj. Gen. Valery Sharagov, chief of staff of a large combined-arms unit in the Eastern Military District, will conduct the first round of consultations on this year’s exercise, Selenga 2012.

    It is due to be held on Russian territory.

    Last year’s exercise took place in Mongolia and rehearsed counterinsurgency operations with up to 250 troops on each side.
