People’s Daily: Sino-Turkey Joint Military Training

The People’s Daily website published an article consisting of reports from the U.K., U.S., Russia, and Turkey on the military exchange that China held with Turkey from September 20 to October 4. It stated that “this military exchange is a ‘joint training’ but not a ‘joint exercise.’” China flew its Su-27 planes over Pakistan and Iran to land at Turkey’s air force base, a journey of over 4,000 miles, without aerial refueling.
