During the 10-day forum themed "China's Peaceful Development and the SCO," the 25 senior military officers also discussed international and regional security situation and anti-terrorism cooperation.


The forum, the second one following last year's, aimed at boosting pragmatic cooperation in defense and security fields among SCO members and observers, according to sources with the Chinese Defense Ministry, the organizer of the forum.
