PLA navy to join US-led Rimpac exercise for first time

24 March, 2013

PLA participation in Rimpac drill is a first, but will be limited by American sensitivities

The PLA has accepted an invitation to participate for the first time in a major US-hosted naval drill, but legal restrictions will limit its role to less sensitive exercises like disaster relief, US officials say.

Beijing's agreement to join the drills being held next year comes at a moment of heightened tensions between China and US ally Japan over the disputed Diaoyu - or Senkaku - Islands, and unease in the US about China's military build-up and its cyber capabilities.
