PUNE, India, Nov. 28 (ChinaMil) — The Hand in Hand 2016 anti-terrorism joint training exercise involving Army troops of China and India was rounded off at a military training base in Pune, India, on November 25.
The ceremony marking the conclusion of the joint exercise was held following the semi-urban anti-terror joint training exercise on last Friday.
The observers and participating troops from China and India attended the ceremony. Heads of observers’ delegations from both sides jointly reviewed the formations of troops participating in the joint training exercise.
