CHENGDU (Xinhua) – A joint anti-terrorism training drill between the Chinese and Indian armies concluded Saturday in Chengdu, capital of southwest China’s Sichuan Province, a military source said Sunday.

The last exercise of the drill was a joint operation in the setting of an urban neighbourhood and included a hostage rescue.

The joint training has not only upgraded combat capabilities but also enhanced mutual understanding and friendship between Chinese and Indian officers and soldiers, said Major General Li Shizhong, a senior representative of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.

Code-named “Hand-in-Hand 2018”, the 12-day event has been the seventh joint anti-terrorism training between the Chinese and Indian armed forces since 2007.
