SHANGHAI, May 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia-China naval exercises may involve fleets of both countries from various regions of the World Ocean to practice new tasks in the future. Russian Navy Deputy Commander-in-Chief, Vice-Admiral Alexander Fedotenkov stated this on Sunday.

Fedotenkov is heading the Naval Interaction-2014 exercises on the Russian side. The drills involving naval forces from Russia and China in the East China Sea are scheduled for end on Monday.

“One of the main and most important elements of the exercises was to practice the interaction of forces and sides in the formation of united warship squadrons,” Fedotenkov said.

“The complex mechanism of united squadrons requires a detailed and effective control system,” the Russian vice-admiral said, adding that the Russian and Chinese sides had made “a considerable progress in this area” during the naval drills.

The skills acquired in the course of the naval drills will help reinforce them in the future with “new episodes, tasks and tactical techniques.” This will involve not only artillery, submarines and aviation but also the use of “missile weapons and the fleets of other regions of the World Ocean,” the vice-admiral said.

“The future exercises will be filled with new episodes, new tactical techniques and will include new regions,” he said, adding it was important that not only the Pacific Fleet but also the Baltic, Northern and Black Sea Fleets should practice interaction with Chinese warships and aviation.
