China and Russia hold naval exercises to test defensive capacities

Beijing, Dec 21 (Prensa Latina) China's and Russia's navies on Wednesday started a period of exercises off the coast of the eastern province of Zhejiang, as part of the annual plan to strengthen military cooperation.

These maneuvers will last until December 27 and will take place on the coastline of the cities of Zhoushan and Taizhou, where thousands of soldiers and many air and naval teams are participating.

According to the Chinese Defense Ministry, the drills are aimed at ‘demonstrating the ability of both sides to jointly respond to maritime security threats, and maintain international and regional peace and stability.’

In addition, the two militaries will seek to deepen the comprehensive strategic partnership between Beijing and Moscow.

Russia sent a detachment from the Pacific Fleet, led by the missile cruiser Varyag, to participate in these drills with China.

Moscow said that during the active part of the exercises, joint firing actions against air and sea targets are planned, as well as practicing anti-submarine maneuvers with the use of weapons.

This year, the Chinese and Russian armies also tested their joint actions during the Vostok maneuvers, organized by Russia, and later in the Pacific.
