Rumble China Conducts Military Exercises in Four Different Seas

China launched military drills in four separate seas on Monday — Two are being held in the South China Sea near the disputed Paracel Islands, one in the East China Sea, and one in the northern Bohai Sea, while live-fire drills are scheduled in the southern Yellow Sea.

Last month, China announced four separate exercises, from the Bohai Sea to the East and Yellow Seas and down to the disputed South China Sea, in what Chinese military experts said was a rare arrangement of drills.

The United States sent spy planes into a no-fly zone over Chinese live-fire military drills last month. In response, China lodged “stern representations” with the United States.

The South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported that this week will include the third Chinese military exercise near the Paracels in 2020. The U.S. and Vietnam strongly objected to the previous two exercises held in June and July. 

The U.S. State Department said the latest exercises represented China breaking its promise five years ago not to “pursue militarization” of the South China Sea. Instead, the State Department described China’s heavily-armed, artificially-enhanced islands in the region and “platforms of coercion to assert control over waters to which Beijing has no lawful maritime claim.”
