South China Sea: Russia and China Prepares for Attack, Japan Calls US Navy for Help

Tensions in the South China Sea are not letting up as China and Russia proceed to active phase of their military cooperation. Japan, who has been on high alert, has also called on the United States for stronger military cooperation in the disputed region. Which alliance will win in the Asian war?

Russia and China Prepares for Attack

Russian and Chinese naval war games have started. While the practice has been going on for a while, many also believe that the military coordination is quite timely given the tensions in the South China Sea. Specifically, the naval war games Naval Interaction-2016 have entered the active stage with servicemen and ships. Russia’s Pacific Fleet Rear Adm. Vadim Kulit confirmed the information.

“The Pacific Fleet combat ships squadron is ready to leave harbor to proceed to the open sea stage of the joint Russian-Chinese exercises,” Sputnik quoted Kulit during the official ceremony that marked the active stage of the games.

Following the ceremony, the Russian Navy and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Navy units reportedly left the harbor of Zhanjiang in China’s Guangdong province to go to the designated regions for the drills. The war games will subject the servicemen into a wide range of joint actions including search, rescue, ship defense in unsafe road-stead, convoy and liberation of ships including air defense training.

Japan Calls US Navy for Help

Russia and China are not the only nations intent on testing their military capabilities in the South China Sea region. Japan recently announced plans to beef up joint military activities with allies in South East Asia with the United States as an attempt to deter Chinese dominance and aggression across the disputed reefs.

“Japan, for its part, will increase its engagement in the South China Sea through, for example, Maritime Self-Defense Force joint training cruises with the US Navy and bilateral and multilateral exercises with regional navies,” RT quoted Japan’s newly-appointed Defense Minister Tomomi Inada.

“If the world condones coercive attempts to change the rules of the road in the East China Sea and the South China Sea, and allow rule-bending to succeed in their waters and airspace, its consequences could become global, not to be confined in the Western Pacific,” Inada said.
