China, Pakistan to hold joint maritime drill

BEIJING, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) — China and Pakistan will stage a joint maritime exercise in Pakistan in January 2020, China’s Ministry of National Defense announced Thursday.

The drill was scheduled according to the annual exchange plan between the two militaries, said the ministry’s spokesman Ren Guoqiang at a press conference.

China will send destroyers, frigates, supply ships and submarine rescue ships to the exercise, according to Ren.

“The exercise is conducive to deepening security cooperation between the two militaries, consolidating and developing the China-Pakistan all-weather strategic cooperative partnership, and promoting the building of a maritime community with a shared future,” Ren said.

The military drill is not related to any regional situations and does not target any third party, Ren said.

  1. With such close cooperation between Pak and China, India is in trouble. It can just forget about defeating Pak now. It makes better sense to make peace with them and benefit from the desire of China to counter USA.

    1. With unresolved border issues , adequate and matching Defence preparedness with China may only ensure peace in the long run . Diplomacy may not always work out without Defence back up . Latoon key bhoot Barton sey nahi maantey .JAI HIND .
