China and Indian will conduct a two-week joint military drill from December 10 in the Chinese southwestern city Chengdu with an aim to improve their capability to counter terrorism and mutual understanding.
The joint exercise between Asia's two largest armies comes after their 73-day showdown at Doklam plateau near their disputed border last year.
Ren said the drill, 'Hand in Hand', will be held from Dec 10 to Dec 23 that will include live shooting and adoptive and basic training.
Both sides are in talks to set up a military hotline to avert Doklam-like crisis in the future.
