BEIJING (Reuters) - 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 the southern part of the Yellow Sea, drills including live-fire exercises will be held from Monday to Wednesday, it said in another notice. All ships are prohibited from entering the area, it said.

Oh, looky how nice they march. How many can sling a fire hose or use an OBA?
Note that the most important ocean for China, the Indian Ocean, has no presence. No sea traffic = no oil for China.
With China, it’s all about face. Pretty soldiers, lovely empty cities, huge dams that move.. I like Chinese people, delightful people, but what am evil government. And the Democrats think this is fine.
I don’t like Chinese people, they are rude.
The only reason they aren’t the rudest people on Earth is because Indian people exist.
Even India could cut off China’s oil supply.
They could put a cork in the Strait of Magellan.
Or the US could bottle them up from air bases in Australia if they opted for a more southerly route.
China spent so much time and money building coastal defenses they can’t even ensure themselves a reliable energy supply.
When China can put a full battle group 6,000 miles away, and sustain it at sea for 100 consecutive days, they can be taken seriously. As long as they’re aware they have to do that 6X to beat us.
Until then, they’re pussy wannabes. And I’m not even convinced they could beat the Japanese Navy at sea.
which ones are crying?
You mean Strait of Malacca. Yes, that's a very corkable Strait, which is why they are pressuring Thailand to build the Kra Canal to bypass Malacca.
“which is why they are pressuring Thailand to build the Kra Canal to bypass Malacca.”
Let me take that back. The Kra Canal wouldn’t be any more secure for the Chinese because the Indians could blockade that too. Indians have a big naval presence in the nearby Andaman Islands. The alternate route China is seeking (away from Indian naval ships) is through the Pakistani port of Gwadar and then through a highway connecting Gwadar to western China.
You know...it’s time for some world class trolling of the Chinese navy, and Trump is just the man.
Yep. I’m from SF Bay Area. You have most of them pegged.
God, both ethnicities are racist too.
The only thing they ever made that had some staying power was Covid-19 aka CCP-19
Quite funny, but only half right... Indians are always rude unless they’re trying to sell you something, but Chinese, once you are introduced, are really friendly and helpful. They’re just not friendly to people they don’t know. And they are like Texans, you find then all over the world! And you can alsocompare them to our Southerners, they really enjoy fine food!
Oxygen Breathing Apparatus.
Like all Asians. If there’s one thing I learned in my years in Asia it’s that each of those nationalities are racist at a level even the KKK could barely manage.
I guess China didn't get the "diversity is our strength" memo.
