Armed Police Arrive in Moscow for Drill
Adjust font size:

A brigade of China's armed police arrived in Moscow on Saturday for an anti-terrorism drill jointly held by China and Russia.




Two Il-76 military transport planes with the group of over 30 armed police and equipment arrived at 3:08 PM local time (1108 GMT).


The Snow Leopard Commando, namely the 13th Special Brigade of the PAP Beijing Corps, is scheduled to join in the Cooperation 2007 Joint Exercise with Russia's domestic security force in early September.


The brigade, a first-class anti-terror force guarding China's national capital, was established in December of 2002. So far, it has handled over 90 major urgent cases and took part in a dozen military drills and performances.


"Cooperation 2007" will be the first international anti-terrorism exercise for China's armed police outside China.


The drill is conducted in accordance with the principles of Shanghai Cooperation Organization and related agreements signed by the two countries, said sources from China's armed police.


The exact date of the drill, which will last three days, has not been announced.
