A multinational peacekeeping exercise code-named "Khaan Quest 2011" will be staged in Mongolia from July 31 to August 12, a Mongolian Armed Forces officer announced here on Friday.

About 900 troops from 11 countries, including the United States, Japan, South Korea, Australia, Canada, India, Germany, Indonesia, Cambodia and Singapore, will participate in the war game, said Lt. Col. B. Bat-Erdene.

The exercise, Bat-Erdene said, will feature U.N. peacekeeping mission tasks. In addition, medical aid will be provided for local residents by military doctors during the exercise.

Mongolia has held the Khaan Quest exercises annually since 2003. In 2006, at the request of the U.S. Pacific Command, the training was turned into a multinational exercise.
