EIJING (INP)::The second joint working group meeting of the Quadrilateral Cooperation and Coordination Mechanism in Counter Terrorism by Afghanistan-China-Pakistan-Tajikistan Armed Forces/ Militaries (QCCM) will be held in Beijing from Nov 8 to 10.

During the meeting, all parties will exchange in-depth views on the specifics of their cooperation under the framework of the QCCM, this was announced by Colonel Wu Qian, spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of National Defence (MND) here at the regular Press briefing.

The QCCM aims to implement the consensus reached by the leaders of the 4 countries on strengthening counter-terrorism cooperation among regional countries, and to deepen such cooperation among the four militaries.

It is not targeting any country or international organisation.

The Chinese side will make joint efforts with other parties to strengthen mutual trust, deepen cooperation and enhance capacity building in counter-terrorism, so as to push the QCCM toward substantial achievements, he added.

“On October 19, China and India conducted a company-and-platoon-level humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) joint drill near the Moldo meeting point at the western section of the China-India border,” he added.

To a question about the China-manufactured aircraft, the spokesperson said that design and manufacturing of the first domestically manufactured aircraft carrier of China is pressing ahead according to plan.
