China, Russia Conduct Joint Naval Drill

China and Russia are beginning joint naval drills which Beijing has described as the country's largest with a foreign partner.

The drills, which are taking place in the Sea of Japan, last from 5-12 July.

People's Liberation Army chief Gen Fang Fenghui said on Tuesday the drills did not "target any third parties", but aimed to deepen ties with Russia.

However they come amid tensions with regional neighbours including Japan and the Philippines over maritime disputes.
