China holds simultaneous military drills in four seas, again

China began five military exercises simultaneously along different parts of its coast on Monday, the second time in two months it will have such concurrent drills against a backdrop of rising regional tension. Two of the exercises are being held near the Paracel Islands in the disputed South China Sea, one in the East China Sea, and one in further north in the Bohai Sea, the Maritime Safety Administration said in notices on its website. In a bid to train a combat-ready military force, China holds military drills periodically, but rarely do multiple exercises happen at the same time.
