China to Conduct Naval Drill Near Senkaku or Diaoyu Islands Updated: 2012-10-19 12:00:00 KST

China to Conduct Naval Drill Near Senkaku or Diaoyu Islands
China will carry out a military drill this Friday to prepare for any contingencies near the island chain in the East China Sea called Senkaku in Japan and Diaoyu in China.
China's state-run Xinhua News Agency says eleven naval ships from Bejing's marine surveillance agency and fishery administration as well as eight fighter jets and helicopters will take part in the exercise.
This is the first time this year for China to carry out such a joint naval drill, but the Chinese Navy has stressed that it's only a part of their annual exercise.
However, diplomatic sources say the exercise is clearly aimed at pressuring Japan over the territorial dispute surrounding the islands.
