More Chinese military drills in disputed sea
MetadataShow full item record
China carried out military drills in the South China Sea all day on Thursday, the country's maritime safety administration said, ordering all other shipping to stay away. China routinely holds drills in the disputed waterway, and the latest exercise came less than a week after a US Navy destroyer sailed near the Paracel Islands, prompting a warning from Chinese warships to leave the area. The maritime administration on Wednesday gave coordinates for an area south of the Chinese island province of Hainan and northwest of the Paracel Islands, which are also claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan, but controlled by China.
