China, India to conduct war games in Kunming

By in News on

Next month Kunming will host joint military exercises between China and India, a major milestone in relations between the world's two most populous countries. China and India went to war with each other in 1962 over their shared Himalayan border and have only in recent years begun to open up to each other.

December's first-ever Sino-Indian war games will feature 200 personnel from the Chinese and Indian armies and will focus on anti-terrorism exercises. Army officials from the respective armies are scheduled to meet next week in the West Bengal city of Kolkata - headquarters of the Indian army's Eastern Command – to hash out the details of the joint exercises, which were approved in Beijing at the beginning of the month during a meeting of military officials from the two countries.
