Joint military programme: ‘Pakistan, China troops to enhance battle competence’

Pakistan-China Joint military exercise will provide an opportunity to troops of both countries to gain from each other’s experience, Inspector General Training and Evaluation Lieutenant General Muzammil Hussain said on Friday.

Speaking as the chief guest during an opening ceremony of the two-week-long joint exercise (YOUYI-IV-2011) held near Jhelum between the Pakistan and Chinese armies, he said China has always been a close friend of Pakistan and the armies of both countries continue to maintain strong ties with each other.

The national flags of both countries were hoisted during the exercise. Chinese PLA Deputy Commander Lieutenant General Zhao Jianzhong also attended the ceremony and highlighted the extraordinary relations between Pakistan and China, an ISPR press release issued in Rawalpindi said. The
joint exercise aims at familiarisation and sharing of information through an inclusive training programme in real time.

This will also include collective training at the unit and brigade level to observe drills and procedures in low intensity conflict operations.

The exercise will enhance the battle competence of participating troops against intimidating operations.
