These maneuvers will take place in the city of Changjiang in Guangdong province and mark the second such collaborative training between the two nations.
"This joint training focuses on overseas maritime counter-terrorism operations, conducting exercises on sniper tactics, boat driving, helicopter landing, and joint rescue," defense ministry spokesperson Wu Qian told a press briefing.
