TBILISI, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- Georgia on Monday kicked off the Noble Partner 2022 multinational military exercise at the Vaziani military base near its capital Tbilisi.

According to a statement on the website of Georgia's Defense Ministry, the joint drill will involve more than 2,400 servicemen from 21 countries including the United States, Britain, and Ukraine.

Troops from Japan and Sweden will join this year's exercise for the first time, said the ministry, stressing that the exercise aims to enhance cooperation between partners and ensure a stable environment in the Black Sea region.

The exercise is hosted by the Eastern Command of the Georgian Defence Forces and the U.S. Europe and Africa Command, and supported by the Georgia-based Joint Training and Evaluation Centre, according to the statement.

Initiated in 2015, "Noble Partner" was originally aimed to train Georgian soldiers and improve Georgian troops' interoperability with NATO units.
