Plzen, West Bohemia: Some 60 professional soldiers and military reserves from the Czech Republic, Germany and the United States will take part in the 12th border exercise in Plzen and Gare, Germany, this week, Plzen Regional Military Command chief Roman Kucera told reporters Monday.

The Patrouille-Hlidka-Euregio-Egrensis exercise, which is unparalleled in the Czech Republic, will focus on military tasks and rescue operations, Kucera said.

Soldiers will be divided into mixed international teams to fulfil several tasks…

The exercise is to extend cooperation of border regions and improve soldiers’ military and non-military skills, Kucera pointed out.

After the Czech part of the exercise ends and is assessed, the event will move to Germany where soldiers are to fulfill other tasks, Slavomir Tomcak, from the Regional Military Command, said.

The team competitions in the complex of the miliary shooting range in Plzen-Lobzy will be open to the public.
