China and Singapore are conducting a joint anti-terrorism training exercise in Guilin in the southwest Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China’s Xinhua news agency quoted military sources as saying.

The drill, "Cooperation-2009", involves 61 soldiers and officers of the People's Liberation Army and 61 of their Singapore counterparts, Huang Xueping, spokesman with the Ministry of National Defense, told Xinhua. The exercise started Thursday and will conclude June 26.

The exercise includes simulations of an attempt by international terrorists to attack an expo using radioactive contaminants, biological and chemical weapons. The task forces will conduct joint training and seminars to improve their ability to detect and handle those threats, the spokesman said.

The joint training exercises were arranged by defense authorities of the two countries, and they represent the China’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) first joint operation with foreign forces in security maintenance, Huang said.
