MOSCOW, July 14 (RIA Novosti) - About 3,000 troops, 300 armored vehicles and over 40 aircraft and helicopters have arrived for joint Russian-Chinese antiterrorism exercises, a spokesman for the Ground Force said on Tuesday.

The Peace Mission 2009 antiterrorism drills will take place in Russia and China on July 22-26.

The first stage of the exercises - military and political consultations - will be held in Khabarovsk in Russia's Far East, while the second and third phases will take place outside Baichen in northern China.

The first Peace Mission exercises were held in Russia and the eastern Chinese province of Shandong in August 2005, involving warships, aircraft and over 10,000 service personnel including naval infantry and paratroopers.
