ISLAMABAD: A contingent of Special Forces of the People’s Liberation Army of China reached here on Saturday to participate in the joint counterterrorism drills, Warrior-VI 2018.

“Troops of the Special Services Groups from both armies will participate in the three-week-long exercise,” said the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

This year’s drills would be the sixth in a series of exercises held annually and alternately in the two countries. Pakistan last hosted the exercises in 2016.

The drills are held as part of bilateral military cooperation and have complemented the growth of defence relations between the neighbours.

“The focus of the joint exe­r­cise is to share respective experiences in the field of counterterrorism operations and learn from each other,” the ISPR said.
