China has resumed naval exercises off its northeast and east coasts. Beijing started this exercise when China's military and political tension with the United States was at its peak.
The country's exercise is widely seen as a show of strength for the United States.
China's maritime security administration said the country's navy today began its first round of naval exercises near the port of Xinjiang in the northeastern Bay Sea.
The second phase of the exercise will be held in the south on Tuesday and Wednesday. Fresh ammunition will be used in this exercise. For this reason, all types of ships have been banned in that area.
Beijing has announced plans for four levels of separate military exercises that will stretch from the Bahai Sea to the East China Sea and the Yellow Sea.
The South China Sea, where China is at the center of a conflict with the United States, has been conducting drills since the end of July. Since then, Beijing has conducted at least 10 rounds of drills in the East and South China Seas.
A Chinese military observer has described these exercises as 'routine exercises'.
