China troops go to Russia for terror drill
by UPI

KORLA, China -- A group of Chinese soldiers departed the country Thursday for an anti-terrorism drill in Russia.

The Chinese soldiers are joining armed forces from the five other members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization -- Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan -- for a drill dubbed "Peace Mission 2007" in Chelyabinsk, Russia, reported Xinhua, China's official government-run news agency.

The exercise is scheduled for Aug. 9-17.

This is the first time the People's Liberation Army has sent so many soldiers and armaments to such a far away place," said Qiu Yanhan, deputy commander of the Chinese troops taking part in the drill. About 1,600 Chinese personnel are expected to take part in the exercise, Xinhua said.

Guo Boxiong, vice chairman of China's Central Military Commission, said "Peace Mission 2007" is an opportunity to deepen military relations between SCO members and enhance cooperation in fighting terrorism, separatism and extremism.
