China, Russia to Hold Maneuvers in South China Sea

  • Published on Jul 28, 2016
    China’s military has said it will hold joint exercises with Russian forces in the South China Sea. Beijing says the air and sea drills will be held in September and are aimed at deepening relations between the two militaries and boosting their capacity to respond to maritime threats. The announcement of the exercises comes, following a recent arbitration ruling that rejected Beijing’s claim to almost the entire strategic body of water. China says the exercises are not aimed at any third parties. Chinese ships have challenged vessels from the U.S., the Philippines and other nations in the disputed waters. China considers the tribunal’s ruling earlier this month to be invalid.
