New Delhi: Indian and Chinese soldiers will take part in a joint exercise next month, weeks after a standoff between the two countries in Ladakh.

The `Hand in Hand` exercise that focuses on counter-terror operations will take place in Pune Nov 16-27.

This will be the second time this exercise is being held. Last year, the exercise was held in Chengdu, China.

The original venue for holding the exercises was Bathinda in Punjab, 125 km from the international border.

However, after the recent ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the international border and the Line of Control (LoC), the venue was changed.
