"Peace Angel 2014" would certainly pave the way for further cementing the existing bilateral relations between armies of the two countries, a statement issued by the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.

The statement added that the joint exercise was aimed at sharing mutual experience and information in the medical field through a comprehensive training programme in a near real-time environment.

Pakistan Army's Major General Hamayun Aziz, and senior Colonel Liu Agiou of China's People Liberation Army represented their respective nations in the opening ceremony.

Flags of both countries were hoisted and national anthems played to mark the start of the military exercise.

The exercise has been particularly designed within the scope of disaster relief operations caused due to massive floods and terrorist attacks on relief camps.

It would also provide an opportunity to exchange latest technological advancements in the field of medicine to improve medical operations during times of war and peace.
