Paratroopers join in the Sino-Russian Peace Mission-2005 exercises on Thursday
An officer at the headquarters of the exercises has told Itar-Tass, "The paratroop units of Russia and China are to land at the Weibei firing range". "Subsequently, they are to engage in a combat and through joint actions seize and hold the designated objectives," the officer said. A reinforced paratroop company of the 76th Division of the Airborne Forces particiates in the exercises on the Russian side. Russian Minister of Defence Sergei Ivanov and his Chinese counterpart Cao Gangchuan will watch the paratroop landing operation. The Weibei firing range is located 50 km north of the city of Weifang. The overall area of the firing range is 173 square kilometres, six to eight metres above sea level. Terrain over there is flat and is marshy in some places. The firing range makes it possible to carry out bombing operations from any types of aircraft and drill field firing by a reinforced mechanised regiment. The Defence ministers and observers from the member-countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) closely follow the exercises. The SCO brings together Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. Mongolia, Iran, India, and Pakistan have observer status.at the SCO
