China-Tajikistan Counter-terrorism drill


Dushanbe, 19 August 2021 (TDI): On Wednesday, China’s Ministry of Public Security and Tajikistan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs started a 2-day Counter terrorism drill named ‘Counterterrorism Collaboration 2021’, in Dushanbe. 

The drill aims at strengthing the anti-terrorism cooperation between the forces of China and Tajikistan to tackle the changing security situation in the region. The current changes in Afghanistan are causing security threats and raising security concerns for the regional states.

On this matter, the Chinese State Councilor and Minister of Public Security Zhao Kezhi penned down a letter to Tajikistan’s internal affairs minister and the chairman of Tajikistan’s State Committee for National Security. In the letter, Zhao mentioned that due to changes in the region, the counterterrorism conditions are not up to the mark thus this exercise will boost the cooperation between regional anti-terrorism forces that will help them prepare to fight against any upcoming terrorist activity in the region.

Zhao’s letter also mentioned that China’s Ministry of Public Security is willing to enhance counter-terrorism ties with Tajik forces and Tajikistan’s state committee for national defense, to form a strong defense for the region and to increase cooperation under SCO. He also added that as Tajikistan will host the upcoming SCO summit this year, China will fully support Tajikistan under the security mechanism of the SCO.

Both China and Tajikistan share a border with Afghanistan, thus these drills are necessary for the regional as well as the national security of both states.
