Different countries have different arrangements for posting their defence attaches for accreditation to India and its neighbourhood. Most foreign military officers look after their defence relationship with India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh together or India, Nepal and Bangladesh as another combination. But some can have seemingly unrelated nominations. For example, Egypt’s Defence Attache, based in Delhi is simultaneously accredited to New Delhi, Dhaka and Tokyo! On the other hand New Zealand’s Defence Attache to India is based in Canberra–Australia’s capital–and travels to India every three months for meetings in India’s Defence Ministry.
