NEW DELHI: China and Russia have begun a joint naval exercise in the South China Sea. The eight-day marine exercises come amid rising tensions over Chinese island-building activity in the region as well as an increasing presence of the US military. The drills are bound to spark further fears over China's expansionist claims in the region, given that the official brief for the drill includes "island seizing missions".
The drills are taking place in the South China Sea, south of Guangdong Province. Called the 'Joint Sea 2016'. The drills, the fifth such exercise between the Chinese and Russian navies, will continue till September 19.
A Chinese Defence Ministry spokesperson had said in July that the drill "will not target a third party".
Due to Modi policy we have lost one of our best friend, partner Russia.
Russia and China were always very close.
Most of the military technology for China has come from Russia.
So this military exercise is just an extension of their past relationship. It has nothing to do with India.
Russia is still our friend, but not china. And problem is russia support china. Even in 1962 Russia didnt intervene. No logic of blaming modi.
RUSSIA AND CHINA ARE NATURAL ENEMIES. RUSSIA CAN NOT HOLD ON MUCH LONGER TO ITS EASTERN LAND. CHINA WILL SOONER OR LATER POPULATE IT AND OCCUPY IT. EVEN USA IS NOT AS RISKY AS CHINA IS FOR RUSSIA.
ALL Wrong analysis ...
Please read the history
China got MIG 21 technology years before India got MIG.
Russia and China were always close.
All this drama by these two countries is directed against America. India has nothing to worry.........
Modi''s geography is weak, he doesn''t have any degrees, he didn''t even finish the High School. Modi Thinks India is located in the Pacific Ocean between the USA and Japan
Modi need to understand that to counter China, we need Russia also
China and Russia should jointly Seize the Daioyu island and annex it for China.
money power of China results into support from Russia.
Is Russia supporting China on the South China Sea issue?
Looks like, we will be seeing a World War III
China''s increasing arrogance towards US is good thing because this will help US to come to its senses sooner.
