RAWALPINDI: Pakistan and China Joint two-week long military exercise “YOUYI-IV” is scheduled to be held in mid November in Pakistan, aimed at a mutual exchange of experience and information through a comprehensive training programme in real time.

The exercise will encompass techniques and procedures involved in Low Intensity Conflict Operations (LIC) environments. The joint interaction in the form of the military exercise aims at sharing and enhancing expertise of both armies in countering terrorism.

Exercise “YOUYI”, which literally translates to "friendship" was initiated by the two countries in 2004. The Pakistan Army was the first foreign army to conduct any exercise on Chinese soil.

So far three exercises have been conducted, including two in China and one in Pakistan. These exercises were mandated to boost the existing professional relationship between the two friendly armies.

Pakistan and China have enjoyed extremely close and brotherly relations, which have matured and strengthened over the years.
