The Chinese and Saudi Arabian armies held their first joint counter-terrorism drill from Oct. 10 to 25 in China.
This training program aims to enhance the capability of the two militaries in combating terrorism and unconventional security threats. Each party sent 25 soldiers to the training, and participants were placed randomly into different teams.
They communicated with each other about skills, strategies and anti-terrorism experience, and discussed the process of building militaries in two countries.
The Chinese People's Liberation Army has held several joint training sessions with foreign militaries recently, such as the China-Tajikistan joint anti-terrorism drill from Oct. 20 to 24, and the China-Pakistan land force joint anti-terrorism drill.
