Fourth India-China military exercise in Nov | The Indian Express The Indian and Chinese armies will hold their fourth joint military exercise in India in November after China Wednesday pitched for promoting a new bilateral security concept based on â€œmutual trustâ€. â€œThe next round of joint training exercises between the two armies will be held in India in November,â€ joint secretary in-charge of China in the External Affairs Ministry Gautam Bambawale said. The third joint exercise between the two armies had taken place in November last year in Chinaâ€™s Chengdu city after a gap of five years. The first exercise was held in 2007 followed by the second round in Karnataka in 2008. However, the round after that was called off by India following denial of visa to a top General. â€œWe should promote new security concept featuring trust, equality and cooperation,â€ Chinese Ambassador Wei Wei said Wednesday.
