China, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan complete anti-terror drills
MOSCOW, May 7 (RIA Novosti) - China, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan have conducted a joint anti-terror exercise in northwest China, Xinhua reported on Saturday.
Code-named Tianshan-II (2011), the exercise saw law enforcement and security personnel from the three member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) coordinate their efforts in locating and neutralizing "terrorists" in a border region.
This is the second SCO joint drill with China's participation.
