A fleet of the People’s Liberation Army will conduct a drill in the West Pacific in late November, China’s Ministry of National Defense announced on Nov. 23.

This drill is a routine one scheduled in the annual plan, and is not directed against any country or particular target, the ministry said.

The drill complies with international laws and practice. China’s navigation freedom and other legal rights shouldn’t be impeded in this sea area, said the ministry.
