Navy of China, Russia and Iran are going to Practice Together. China, Russia and Iran will start joint naval exercises in the Gulf of Oman on Friday. The Chinese Ministry of Defense announced this on Thursday.
The testing lasts until Monday.
Beijing is sending the Xining to the exercise, a ship aimed at destroying guided missiles.
According to the ministry, the exercise is “not necessarily linked to the regional situation”. The joint test comes in a period of rising tensions between the US and Iran.
The Gulf of Oman is a water between the Strait of Hormuz and the Arabian Sea. China calls the exercise a “normal military exchange” in line with international laws.
