The drills began Thursday off the coast of Lushun in China’s northeast province of Liaoning. Ahead of the exercise, an area of some 276 square kilometers was declared off limits, Chinese media reported, citing the country’s Maritime Security Agency.

Lushun is home to an important naval base for the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) North Sea Fleet, responsible for safeguarding China’s waters off the Korean Peninsula.
