The joint anti-terrorist drill which will be launched by member countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) is a good opportunity to enhance international cooperation on combating terrorism, separatism and extremism, China's top military officer said on Friday.

Guo Boxiong, vice chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the remarks during his inspection of troops that will take part in the exercise to be held from August 9 to 17.

Guo said the exercise, dubbed "Peace Mission 2007", will help deepen relations between SCO member country armies and enhance cooperation on defence security.

Guo said the troops should be well prepared for the drill.

The drill will be carried out in Chelyabinsk in Russia's Ural Mountains region and in Urumqi, capital of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

All six SCO members -- China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan -- will take part.

Altogether 1,600 soldiers from China's army and air force -- including airborne and logistic units -- will take part in the drill, according to the Ministry of Defence.
