Three ships from the Chinese Navy have conducted drills in the Indian Ocean and sailed on to the western Pacific, the Associated Press reports.

 

One of the Chinese Navy’s newest and largest ships, Changbaishan, and two destroyers conducted anti-piracy, search and rescue, and damage control exercises in the Indian Ocean.

As reported by the CCTV, the ships transited the Lombok Strait, near the Indonesian island of Bali, before sailing north toward the Philippines.

In order to show off its naval capability and extend its influence, China has also dispatched their ships to join anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden and off the coast of Somalia.
