The Chinese and Pakistani air forces on 28 August 2013 decided to hold a joint exercise next week in a region bordering Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. The joint drill will be held during September 2013 in China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

The exercise, code-named Shaheen (Eagle)-2, is another cooperative project between the two air forces after the Shaheen-1 drill in Pakistan in March 2011. The drill between the two close allies is being held ahead of an India-China military exercise planned for November 2013.

The exercise, codenamed Hand-in-Hand, is scheduled to be held in China's Chengdu Military Command area from November 4 to 14 2013.
India and China are expected to field about 150 troops each for the exercise, which is likely to focus on anti-terrorism manoeuvres.
