Beijing—Pakistani and Chinese armies will hold a joint anti-terrorism military training here in China this summer, the Information Office of the Ministry of National Defence has said.The training, code-named “Friendship-2010,” will be the third one of this kind between the two countries, the Xinhua news agency quoted the Defence office giving no details about the training.The office said the two armies’ expert teams held the first round of discussions about the training from March 1 to 3.

They agreed that the training, not targeting at the third party, was aimed at “deepening the friendly and cooperative relationship between the two armies” while “enhancing their capabilities in coping with terrorism and safeguarding regional peace and stability.”

China and Pakistan held their first-ever joint anti-terrorism exercise code-named “Friendship-2004” in Xinjiang’s Taxkorgan Tajik Autonomous County bordering Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan. About 200 border troops from both sides participated in the drill.

The second joint anti-terror military training was code-named “Friendship-2006.” It was carried out in the hilly area of northern Pakistan’s Abbottabad.
