Despite tensions between Washington and Beijing over the South China Sea, China has announced that it will take part in the international maritime exercise RIMPAC. Some US politicians, however, are attempting to ban Beijing’s participation.

The Rim of the Pacific exercise, known as RIMPAC, is one of the world’s largest military drills. Hosted by the United States, it occurs every two years off the coast of Hawaii.

In the midst of heated tensions between the US and China, it was unclear if Beijing would take part in the upcoming exercises. But on Thursday, the Chinese government indicated that it would lay those differences aside, for the time being.

“Joining these military exercises will be beneficial to improving the Chinese navy’s ability to contend with non-traditional security threats,” said Wu Qian, a spokesman for China’s Ministry of Defense.
