Southern Metropolitan Daily reported that, between November 5 and 13, the Romanian Army and Chinese PLA will conduct a joint military exercise called “Friendship Action 2010” in Kunming City, Yunnan Province. This is the seventh joint exercise that the PLA has held with a foreign army in the last six months. It is also the first time that a European country’s armed forces have come to China for joint training with the Chinese military. The military officers that the newspaper interviewed said that China must improve its ability to take military action, due to the pressure resulting from the frequent military exercises that the U.S. holds.
