BEIJING - The Chinese and Thai air forces will this month hold their first joint exercises, China's Defense Ministry said on Wednesday, in another sign of army-led Thailand's increased engagement with Beijing.

The "Falcon Strike 2015" drills will take place at the Korat Royal Thai Air Force Base from November 12-30, China's Defense Ministry said.

"The aim of this joint exercise is to increase mutual learning and understanding between the two countries' air forces, deepen Sino-Thai practical cooperation and increase mutual trust and friendship," it said, without elaborating.
