Russia, China plan joint naval drills in Mediterranean Sea, Pacific Ocean in 2015
BEIJING. Nov 18 (Interfax-AVN) - At their recent meeting the Russian and Chinese defense ministers pointed out that the spectrum of military measures has noticeably expanded and become systemic.
After talks with his Chinese counterpart, the Russian defense minister, Army Gen. Sergei Shoigu, recalled that in May 2014 the two countries successfully held their third consecutive naval exercise, Maritime Cooperation, which saw the two countries' sailors training as part of mixed squadrons of ships for the first time.
"We are planning to conduct another joint naval exercise in the Mediterranean Sea next spring. There are also plans to conduct a joint naval exercise in the Pacific Ocean," said the Russian defense minister.
In 2014 Chinese crews successfully performed at the Tank Biathlon world championship and the Aviadarts international competition, Shoigu recalled. "They demonstrated that the fighting spirit and skills of the Chinese military servicemen are up to the highest standards," said Shoigu, adding that events of this kind "provide a good format for exchanging experience."
"Our cooperation in the military spheres has a great potential, and the Russian side is ready to develop it across the broadest possible spectrum of areas," said the Russian defense minister.
