India and the United States are considering holding a joint training exercise in nuclear, chemical and biological warfare at a U.S. proposal, the Indian newspaper The Tribune reported on Tuesday.

The exercise featured on the agenda of the 14th meeting of the Army Executive Steering Group, comprising top Indian and U.S. army officers that began at Headquarters Western Command near Chandigarh in northwestern India on Tuesday, said the report.

The four-day meeting is due to review the Indo-U.S. military cooperation in the past year and work out program for this year, said the report.

The report quoted unnamed sources as saying that the Americans put the proposal forth first and the Indian army is yet to decide on the modalities and unit that might join it.

The moves come in the backdrop of the Indo-U.S. civilian nuclear deal and global security environment, said the report.

The Indian army have also been engaged in orienting, training and equipping for operations in a nuclear, chemical and biological warfare contaminated environment, said the report.
