The first ever ‘Airspace Security - 2016’ was held in May last year and this year, the six-day Russian-Chinese air defense drills is set to work out joint planning of combat operations.

China’s Defense Ministry said that the drills will bolster cooperation between the two countries’ armies and secure a strategic balance of forces in the Pacific Rim.

The ministry further said that the main task of the exercise is to work out joint planning of combat operations when organizing air missile defenses, operation and mutual fire support, as well as responding to sporadic and incendiary ballistic and cruise missile strikes over the two countries’ territories.

The Chinese ministry further stated that this year, the drills are considered as a pragmatic gesture of important mutual understanding in terms of bolstering Russian-Chinese cooperation in air defense reached by the two countries’ leaders. 

The ministry added that China and Russia oppose the global air defense system, and the armed forces of the two countries will strengthen cooperation for mutual security and support for regional balance.

China has stressed that the drills are not directed against third countries and are aimed at strengthening mutual understanding and cooperation between the two countries’ armies.
