Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Mike Mullen observed an anti-terror drill and visited a People's Liberation Army (PLA) air force base in east China's Zhejiang and Shandong provinces on Tuesday.

The drill was conducted by a mechanized infantry unit of the PLA's Nanjing Military Area Command stationed close to Hangzhou, the capital city of Zhejiang Province.

According to Qian Lihua, director of the Foreign Affairs Office with the National Defense Ministry, Mullen's visit highlighted the consensus reached between China and the United States and showcased the commitment that China holds toward boosting ties between the armed forces of both nations.

Mullen arrived in China on July 9, beginning a four-day visit at the invitation of Chen Bingde, the chief of the PLA's General Staff.
