BEIJING, May 1 (Xinhua) -- China and Russia will stage joint naval drills in the East China Sea off Shanghai in late May, China's ministry of national defense has said.

The "Joint Sea-2014" drills are regular exercises held by Chinese and Russian navies, and is aimed to enhance practical cooperation between the two militaries and to strengthen their capabilities to jointly deal with maritime security threats, said a report published on the ministry's website.
