2016 marks the sixth “Joint Sea” drill between China and Russia

This year marks the sixth time that China and Russia have conducted joint naval drills. Starting in 2012, the first China-Russia “Joint Sea” exercise was held in China’s northern Yellow Sea. The following year, they took place in waters near the Russian city of Vladivostok. In 2014, the third “Joint Sea” drill was held in the East China Sea, where vessels from both navies combined in drills together for the first time. In 2015, two drills were held. One was in the Mediterranean Sea in May, focusing on open-sea navigation safety, while the other was conducted in August in the Sea of Japan, where the countries held their first combined-landing operation drill.
