Sino-Russian joint military exercises pose no threat to any country, commanders say
font size    

The first China-Russia joint military exercises neither aim at any third party nor concern the interests of any third country and will pose no threat to any country, commanders of the military drill said Thursday in Vladivostok.

This is part of the remarks by Liang Guanglie, chief of the general staff of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, and his Russian counterpart Yury Baluyevsky, at press conference after the military exercises, code-named Peace Mission 2005, began in the Russian Far East city of Vladivostok Thursday morning.

The joint military exercises are aimed at deepening mutual trust, promoting mutual friendship and enhancing cooperation and coordination between the two armed forces, in order to improve their capabilities to meet new challenges and threats, according to the two generals.

Liang said the 10,000 participating troops from the army, navy and air force of the two countries will focus on the maneuvers of strategic consultations and battle planning, transportation and deployment of troops, and combat practice.

Baluyevsky echoed Liang's view and said the holding of the joint military exercises does not mean that the two countries want to form something like a military bloc.
