The Chinese and Russian navies completed a nine-day joint exercise in Peter the Great Gulf, waters off the Clerk Cape and the Sea of Japan on Friday, and then held a joint naval military parade.

"The drill not only meets the preset targets of consolidating the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership, deepening pragmatic cooperation and improving the joint response to security threats at sea, but also demonstrates the expansive space, potential and future for China-Russia military cooperation at sea," said WangHai, deputy commander of the Chinese navy and also the director of the drill from the Chinese side.

The success of the drill is another step toward making China-Russia joint sea drills more regular and more like real battle scenarios, Wang said. The two have held five joint naval exercises since 2005.
