April 6, Zhao Lijian, spokesman of China Ministry of Foreign Affairs, presided over a regular press conference. A reporter asked that it was reported that the navies of the United States, Japan, Australia, India and France held joint maritime exercises in the Bay of Bengal from 5 to 7. Some analysts said that this was aimed at containing China’s maritime activities. How does China respond to this?
Zhao Lijian said that we have taken note of the relevant reports. China has always believed that military cooperation between countries should be conducive to regional peace and stability.
