Moscow: A military team from Russia will go to the US in May for a joint anti-terror exercise, a Russian Defence Ministry official said.

A detachment from Russia`s Airborne Assault Forces (AAF) will take part in the exercise between May 24-31 at Fort Carson, Colorado, said Defence Ministry spokesman Colonel Alexander Kucherenko.

"This is the first time such an exercise is being held," he said.

"The AAF will contribute a special task group that will exercise with US special service weapons," he said.

The Russian group will arrive a week before the start of the drills, he added.
