China and Pakistan's joint military drill has entered its final stage. Senior officials from the two armies have arrived in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, in northwest China, to observe the final exercise.
Years of preparation and seven days of training, the 2010 Chinese and Pakistani joint military drill has entered its final stage.
The final showdown of the live-fire drill involves locating terrorists with global positioning devices, launching air-strikes and hostage rescue operations, which could be the most difficult task.
A so-called three-dimensional attack is another highlight in Friday's counter-terrorism exercise. The Air Force is helping out with transport helicopters, armed helicopters and fighter bombers. They are joining ground troops in the scenario as more and more terrorists seek refuge in mountains.
Code named "Friendship-2010," the drill is the third of its kind between China and Pakistan in six years. A total of 226 border soldiers from the two countries participated.
During this year's drill, the two armies shared "state of the art" anti-terror weaponry. It is to further develop the two countries' capabilities in fighting terrorism together and safeguarding regional peace and stability.
