Indian and Pakistani army soldiers were filmed dancing together to Bollywood and Punjabi songs following joint military anti-terrorism drills in Russia.
The dance party took place at an anti-terrorism drill hosted by Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and held in Russian town of Chebarkul. The rare camaraderie between both armies was captured by India-based New Delhi Television Limited (NDTV).
“The soldiers of all participating countries were attending a function arranged by the Indian Army on the second-last day of the exercises, where they celebrated together by dancing,” reports Pakistani newspaper, the Express Tribune.
