Code-named the “Joint Sea 2017” drill, it will also improve coordination between the two navies on joint defense operations at sea.

According to consensus reached by the two countries, the two navies are scheduled to hold military drill in waters of the Baltic Sea in late July and then the Sea of Japan and Okhotsk in middle September.

This year’s drill aims to jointly carry out rescue missions and protect the safety of economic activities at sea.
