Russia and China are scheduled to hold joint military drills in the waters and airspace of the Sea of Japan, Beijing’s Defense ministry announced.

The exercises are set to take place between August 20 through August 28 in the Peter the Great Gulf and other areas of the Russian coast, reported The BRICS Post.

The drills are designed “to improve China’s and Russia’s capacity in coping with maritime security threats. Navies of the the two countries will join forces to simulate anti-submarine combat, air defense and other relevant missions,” Defense Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun told reporters last week.

Yang accused the US Friday of playing double standards in regards to its criticism of China’s construction projects on a host of islands based in the South China Sea.

“The US side disregards and distorts the facts and plays up China’s military threat to sow discord between China and the littoral states in the South China Sea. We firmly oppose such actions,” added Yang.
