The chiefs of staff of Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) member countries ordered commanders of various troops Thursday in Urumqi to launch a long-prepared anti-terror drill "Peace Mission 2007", following strategic negotiations here on Thursday.

The drill attended by China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan "is not intended to aim at any third party," said Liang Guanglie, Chief of the General Staff of the Chinese People's Liberation Army.

"It does not concern the interest of any third party nor makes threat to any country," he said, following the negotiations at the capital city of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

A total of 1,600 officers and soldiers from land and air forces of Chinese People's Liberation Army participated in the war game held at Chelyabinsk in Russia's Ural Mountainous region.

About 6,500 troops and 80 aircraft are expected to take part in the drill, including 2,000 troops and 36 aircraft from Russia, in Chelyabinsk in Russia and in Urumqi from Aug. 9 to 17.
