China’s armed forces concluded their first multinational peacekeeping exercise, showing off their combat prowess with drones and mine-clearing robots while seeking to project a more benign image. About 1,000 troops from China, Pakistan, Mongolia and Thailand participated in the 10-day exercise at a People’s Liberation Army training base in Queshan county in the central province of Henan, though most of the soldiers appeared to be Chinese. Asian giant is modernizing its military by pumping hundreds of billions of dollars annually into its defence budget.
