Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.6

China and Russia are set to continue their “no limits” cooperation with a joint naval exercise in the East China Sea from December 21 through December 27. Elements of the Russian Navy have left Vladivostok led by the Russian missile cruiser Varyag along with a frigate and two corvettes. Nine Chinese ships are thought to be a part of this year’s “Maritime Cooperation” including the Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning and the guided missile cruiser Lhasa accompanied by some frigates and destroyers.
