Pakistan and China will hold two joint military exercises in 2011, a Pakistani senior military leader said Tuesday.
 
The two exercises, one army drill and one air force one, will be held to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Pakistan and China, said General Khalid Shameem Wynne, chairman of Pakistan's Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee.
 
Wynne, who is paying a five-day visit to China, told reporters that the two countries will also participate in a multinational navy drill in March.
 
Wynne hailed the strategic partnership between Pakistan and China, saying it is "the best example" of bilateral ties and a "stabilizing force" in the region.
 
"The China-Pakistan partnership is a source of comfort and stability for the entire region," Wynne said.
 
The visit is Wynne's first official visit to China since he was promoted to the rank of general and assumed his present position in October 2010.
 
In July 2010, Wynne led a joint anti-terrorism drill between Pakistan and China in Qingtongxia in northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.
