A Special Forces unit of the People's Liberation Army of China has just entered into Thailand territory amidst mass rioting on the streets of Bangkok.

China Radio International reports that, "The Chinese and Thai army special forces kicked off a 14-day joint anti-terror training in Thailand on Monday morning.
 Code-named "Strike-2013," the drill is the fourth of its kind hosted by the two countries.""

The Special Forces units from China and Thailand are expected to drill to prepare for combatting domestic terrorism. They contend that these measure provide "regional safety and stability."

According to China Radio International, "The drill is aimed at further deepening exchanges between the special forces of the two neighboring countries and enhancing their capabilities of training and performing special operations. It is also intended to strengthen the friendly ties between the special forces of the two nations and expand future cooperation."

Wang Junli, deputy chief of staff from the China's Guangzhou Military Area Command, is expected to lead the combat drills in Thailand.
