In contrast to multilateral or bilateral drills conducted by some other countries, including Japan, this multinational drill will be accessible to the public. China and Russia have released the schedule, location, and military deployments of the drill. Furthermore, organizers will invite the SCO secretariat and regional anti-terrorism agencies, along with six observer nations including Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Mongolia and India, and three dialogue partners including Sri Lanka, Byelorussia and Turkey, to review the drill. Military attaches to China from more than 60 countries are also listed on the invitation.
