China to conduct live-ammunition naval drill

BEIJING (BNS): The Beihai Fleet of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) will conduct a four-day live-ammunition naval drill in the Yellow Sea, from September 1 to 4, according to a media report.

"The oncoming scheduled rehearsal will be held in accordance with the annual plan in a region, where exercises of the People's Liberation Army [of China] are traditional," RIA Novosti quoted the Chinese Ministry of National Defense in a statement.

The drill is an annual routine training, mainly aimed for the training of naval artillery's skills and shooting of shipboard artillery, the report said.

The exercise will be held off the Chinese coastal city of Qingdao to stay away from the US-South Korea exercises in waters closer to the Korean coast.
