India-China anti-terror drill concludes, PLA seeks to boost defence ties

 Beijing: Over 300 troops of India and China today concluded their fifth round of military exercises, holding for the first time simulated anti-terror drills at the borders as the PLA evinced interest in expanding military ties with India.

A video footage of the drill conducted at a border village released by the Indian Defence Ministry showed the Indian Army and the People's Liberation Army engaged in a combined mock operation raiding and seizing a terrorist camp.

Summing the 10-day exercises between the troops from the border regiments, Maj Gen Zhang Bing, Deputy Chief of Staff of Chengdu Military Command said that the exercises demonstrated the will of the two militaries to deal with terrorist threats and cooperate with each other to create a good environment for development.
