KUNMING, Oct. 22 -- China and India concluded a joint anti-terrorism training on Thursday in Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province.

More than 300 Chinese and Indian army soldiers took part in the closing ceremony, using grenade launchers, mortars, antitank missiles, flamethrowers and other arms.

Zhang Bing, deputy chief of staff of the People's Liberation Army Chengdu Military Area Command, said China and India have carried out cooperation in military exercises and personnel training in recent years.

The drill is the fifth of its kind between the two countries' armies, showing their will to deal with terrorist threats and cooperate with each other to create a good environment for development, said Zhang.

The training, which started on Oct. 12, had three phases: armament display and military demonstration, troop training and integrated exercises.

Participants had finished anti-terrorism tasks including practical shooting, tactic cable drop and clearing houses.
