The Romanian and Chinese armies on Monday started a joint 10-day training session in mountain skills.
"Friendship Operation 2009" aims to exchange the training experience of the two armies, promote their basic technical and tactical capabilities, and further their cooperation.
The training was to focus on climbing, shooting, mountain rescues, and field drills. Both armies dispatched one squad to take part in the training.
The drill in western Romania was scheduled to end Sept. 23.
