PANO – Troops of Vietnam and China co-held a joint counter-terrorist exercise entitled “Nam Na 2017” as part of the activities of the fourth Vietnam-China Border Defense Friendship Exchange.

As the scenario went, a group of terrorists used fake passports to pass the Ma Lu Thang (Vietnam) – Jin Shuihe (China) Border Gates. Spotted by the Vietnamese border force, the terrorists attacked the border guards and held tourists hostage. Relevant forces of the two countries then jointly fought the terrorists, neutralizing them while safely rescuing the hostages.

The People’s Army Newspaper Online would like to present a number of images recorded at the exercise.
