No Sino-Indian army exercise scheduled this year: MEA

New Delhi, Sep 24 (PTI) India and China will hold joint military exercises next year and no such drill is planned for this year, government said today.

Reacting to media reports that the Sino-Indian joint army exercise had been "called off", spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs Vishnu Prakash said the two countries had mutually decided to have the exercise next year.

"It was mutually decided during the last exercise that the next joint military exercise would be held in 2010.

Therefore, no joint military exercise was planned in 2009," Prakash said in a statement here.

He said India and China had conducted joint military exercises in 2007 and 2008.

In a path breaking move, the two armies held the first ever exercise, named 'Hand-in-Hand' in December 2007 in Kunming province of China, when a 100-strong Indian Army delegation took part in a counter-terrorism exercise.
