MOSCOW, June 1. /TASS/. Russian and Chinese military will go ahead with joint combat training activities, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has said.
"The joint Russian-Chinese naval exercise Joint Sea-2015, in which the guided missile cruiser The Moskva took part, was the most important combat training event. With our Chinese counterparts we are going to go ahead with joint combat training practices," Shoigu told a conference at the Defense Ministry.
Shoigu said "the exercise demonstrated a high level of interaction by Russian and Chinese Navy men."
"All results were good or excellent," Shoigu said.
He recalled that the joint task force, dispatched to the Mediterranean, practised escort operations, protection of shipping and fishing and assistance to ships in distress. Also, Russian and Chinese ships conducted artillery fire and depth charge dropping practices.
Earlier it was announced that Russia and China would hold the second phase of the Joint Sea-2015 in the Sea of Japan.
