China, Russia to stage military drills in South China Sea

BEIJING: China and Russia were to start war games in the South China Sea on Monday, Beijing’s defence ministry said, in a show of force after an international tribunal invalidated the Asian giant’s extensive claims in the area.

The eight-day joint exercises will include a focus on “seizing and controlling” islands and shoals, Chinese navy spokesman Liang Yang said in a statement.
