It was the first ever joint anti-terrorism exercise between the two countries’ law enforcement bodies and special forces within the framework of Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). The exercise was aimed at implementing the consensus on enhancing security cooperation among SCO member states reached at the SCO summit in June, and to improve coordination between their law enforcement departments and special services.
