After talks with his Chinese counterpart, the Russian defense minister, Army Gen. Sergei Shoigu, recalled that in May 2014 the two countries successfully held their third consecutive naval exercise, Maritime Cooperation, which saw the two countries’ sailors training as part of mixed squadrons of ships for the first time.
“We are planning to conduct another joint naval exercise in the Mediterranean Sea next spring. There are also plans to conduct a joint naval exercise in the Pacific Ocean,” said the Russian defense minister.
“Our cooperation in the military spheres has a great potential, and the Russian side is ready to develop it across the broadest possible spectrum of areas,” said the Russian defense minister.
