MAHAJAN (India), October 16 (RIA Novosti) - Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said Sunday that the joint counterterrorism exercise just held in the northwestern Indian state of Rajasthan had been useful to both sides as the military and security forces of Russia and India had a lot of expertise to share with each other.
