Joint China-Russia naval exercise in May

China and Russia will stage joint naval drills in the East China Sea off Shanghai in late May, according to the Chinese Ministry of National Defense.

The "Joint Sea-2014" drills are regular exercises held by Chinese and Russian navies, and are aimed at enhancing practical cooperation between the two militaries and to strengthen their capabilities to jointly deal with maritime security threats, according to the ministry's website.

China and Russia held similar drills off the coast of Russia's Far East last year, which saw seven vessels from China's North Sea Fleet and South Sea Fleet and 12 vessels from Russia's Pacific Fleet take part in the weeklong exercises.
