BEIJING, July 31 (Xinhua) -- Military exercises being carried out by China are not targeted at any other country, a Defense Ministry spokesman said on Thursday, warning that parties should not overinterpret China's routine drills.

"We hope parties concerned do not to make groundless links. It is one's own problem if he is suspicious of China's military drills and takes it personally," said Geng Yansheng at a monthly press briefing.

His remarks were a response to comments made in the Japanese media that said China's military drill was targeted at Japan.

Geng said these military exercises are annual routine events with the aim of strengthening real-combat training and military preparation, and improving the capability of countering various security threats.
