New Yellow Sea naval drills seen as warning message | South China Morning Post

The PLA Navy launched eight days of naval drills in the Yellow Sea and Bohai Strait yesterday – a day after US Vice-President Joseph Biden departed China for South Korea.

The drills were confirmed by a navigation warning issued by the Liaoning Maritime Safety Administration, which oversees the area. The notice banned all civilian vessels from northern portions of the Yellow Sea and Bohai Strait from 4pm yesterday to the same time next Friday.

The administration said the area would be used for a military mission, suggesting that the People’s Liberation Army would be conducting naval drills similar to those conducted in the area last month.
