Saudi Arabia, China Kick off Naval Drill

Saudi Arabia and China kicked off on Sunday mixed naval drill Blue Sword 2019.

The three-week exercise aims to boost cooperation between the Saudi Royal Navy and the Chinese People's Navy and train forces on countering maritime terrorism and piracy.

Interesting, China may not have been happy with with the previous 'tanker war' that took place in the region and wants to send a message to relevant parties. It's also part of greater defense cooperation between Saudi Arabia and China.

You beat me to it. China oil comes mainly from Saudi Arabia. If china wants to ensure safety for oil tankers headed to China then it must get its self involved
