The first unit of a Chinese army corps has set off to join anti-terrorism drills in Kazakhstan under the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

A train carrying the unit and weapons departed Tuesday evening from the railway station of the town of Zhurihe in Inner Mongolia where a military training base is located. The unit is scheduled to arrive at a drilling area in Kazakhstan on September the 7th.

The unit is among about 1-thousand personnel from the land and air forces of the People's Liberation Army that will take part in "Peace Mission 2010" - which is what the drills are called. Some 4-thousand troops from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, and Tajikistan will also join the drills, which run from September the 9th to the 25th.
