  • US 'closely tracking' as Chinese navy in the Baltics for war games with Russia news

    Chinese warships will join Vladimir Putin’s navy in the Baltic Sea on Friday ahead of war games which are being watched closely by Western powers. The drills, which are a sign of both the growing reach of the Chinese military and closer strategic ties between Moscow and Beijing, kick off a busy summer of drills by Russia in eastern Europe which have raised alarm in Washington. China’s most advanced guided-missile destroyers are expected to arrive in the Russian enclave of Kalingrad on Friday before taking to the seas with a Russian flotilla on Monday for exercises that will run until July 31. The Type 052D destroyer, Changsha, missile frigate Yuncheng and supply ship Luoma Lake are taking part in the drills. PLA navy ships to enter Baltic Sea for the first time to hold joint exercises with Russia— China News 中国新闻网 (@Echinanews) July 19, 2017 The Changsha was described as China’s “most advanced guided-missile destroyer” by Chinese media, while the Yuncheng is also believed to be among the most capable frigates in the People Liberation Army (PLA) Navy’s arsenal. "By sending its most advanced guided-missile destroyers, China is expressing its sincerity to Russia and also sends a strong signal to other countries who plan to provoke us," Li Jie, a Beijing-based navy expert, told the state-run Global Times. The Royal Navy escorted a flotilla of Chinese warships through English waters as it prepared to carry out drills with Vladimir Putin's forces. Credit: Rob Verkerk While China has dispatched some of its most high-end warships to the joint exercise, the continent from Russia’s Baltic fleet is much smaller. Just two combat ships – new corvettes of the Steregushchy class – will be joined by a support tug, naval Ka-27 helicopters and land-based Su-24 fighter-bombers as air support.  The reason for such a small showing at this year’s Joint Sea exercise is straightforward, says Maxim Shepovalenko, a former Russian navy captain and expert at the Moscow-based Center for the Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST), said the small Russian showing was because there was "no need for a large-scale exercise" in the Baltic, "merely a symbolic one". "I can’t imagine the Russian navy ever holding a large-scale naval drill even by itself. And for the Chinese Navy, this is just a way to get a taste for ‘global reach,’” Mr Shepovalenko said. The exercise will run the course of a week, and will feature anti-submarine, anti-aircraft, and anti-ship drills. The two sides will also practice anti-piracy as well as search and rescue operations. The joint flotilla is under the command of Russian Vice Admiral Alexander Fedotenkov and Chinese Vice-Admiral Tian Zhong.  The drills are being conducted in Russian, according to the Baltic Fleet’s press service. China has been expanding its military reach by building up its naval forces and establishing its first overseas military base in the tiny east African nation of Djibouti this year. The manoeuvres in the Baltic Sea are being seen by Chinese experts as a show of force following joint drills by the United States and Beijing's two key Asian rivals - India and Japan – in the Indian Ocean earlier this month. Observers also say they are directed at Nato, and underscore China’s aspirations to be a major blue sea power and a rival to US naval might. A statement from the United States European command said: “We are closely tracking Russian exercises with other participants, like China. “While we support their rights to train in international commons, we expect all nations adhere to international norms and laws,” the statement added, according the the Stars and stripes military news website. US and Japanese (R) Navy ships are pictured docked at a harbour during the inauguration of joint naval exercises with India in Chennai on July 10, 2017.  Credit: AFP The drills mark the first occasion that Chinese warships have ever carried out manoeuvres in the strategically important Baltic Sea, and come after recent manoeuvres in the Mediterranean. Wei Dongxu, a Beijing based military expert, said that Britain would feel a loss of prestige over the Chinese drills, given its history as a maritime power. “If you look back 30 years ago, there was no way that Britain could have imagined China could dispatch such advanced warships to carry out these activities,” he told The Telegraph. “I expect China will have overwhelming advantage over Britain on naval strength.” A named commentary in the Global Times on Friday that the drills are part of a wider plan of “enhancing (China’s) presence in oceans around the world”. “China should not back down from its current stance in the face of criticism from NATO countries,” said the commentary, from Cui Heng. a PhD candidate at the Center for Russian Studies, East China Normal University. “An appropriate entry into the NATO countries' "backyard" like the Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the Baltic Sea will reflect China's confidence and strength.” Members of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy stand on the Liaoning aircraft carrier as it sails into Hong Kong, china, on Friday, July 7, 2017.  Credit: Bloomberg Meanwhile, concerns have been raised by the US military over Russian war games in Belarus - an ally of Moscow - in September. Some NATO allies believe the Russian exercise could number more than 100,000 troops and involve nuclear weapons training, the biggest such exercise since 2013. US Army Lieutenant General Ben Hodges, who heads US Army forces in Europe, told Reuters that allies are also concerned that the manouvres could be a “Trojan horse”, in which Russia would leave equipment behind.

  • Sergei Lavrov: Maybe Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin had more 'secret' meetings news

    President Donald Trump may have had yet more undisclosed meetings with Vladimir Putin, the Russian foreign minister has said – but he mocked the US for their obsession with the encounters. Sergei Lavrov, the wily, wise-cracking veteran politician, laughed when asked by NBC News whether there had been more than the three meetings now known about at the G20 in Germany, earlier this month. Mr Trump and Mr Putin held a bilateral session in Hamburg, which was widely reported. They also met for the leaders’ photo. But on Tuesday it emerged that Mr Trump had another hour-long discussion with Mr Putin which was not disclosed by the White House, and at which Mr Trump relied on Mr Putin’s translator. Eyebrows were raised at the absence of American officials during the discussion. On Friday Mr Lavrov said they may have met again – although he joked about the possibility.  “They might have met even much more than just three times,” he said. "Maybe they went to the toilet together.” Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin at the G20 in Germany on July 7 Credit: AP Asked whether the two presidents had other conversations or met in the corridors of the G-20 meeting, Mr Lavrov used the analogy of children mingling at a playschool. “When you are bought by your parents to a kindergarten do you mix with the people who are waiting in the same room to start going to a classroom?” he asked. "I remember when I was in that position I did spend five or ten minutes in the kindergarten before they brought us to the classroom.” Mr Lavrov, echoing the White House, downplayed Tuesday’s revelations about the undisclosed conversation. “After the dinner was over - I was not there - President Trump apparently went to pick up his wife and spent some minutes with President Putin. “So what?” The White House is yet to respond to Mr Lavrov's comments. Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is "sick." All G 20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany. Press knew!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 19, 2017 American media critical of Mr Trump reacted with horror to the news of the undisclosed dinner conversation, with Rachel Maddow, MSNBC anchor, describing an audible tsunami of shock reverberating around her office as the news broke. But Mr Trump’s defenders have dismissed the news as irrelevant, saying that it is common for world leaders to cross paths informally. Mr Trump himself said the conversation – which surprised other world leaders at the table - was mainly “pleasantries”. “So the meal was going, and toward dessert I went down just to say hello to Melania, and while I was there I said hello to Putin,” he told The New York Times.  “Really, pleasantries more than anything else. It was not a long conversation, but it was, you know, could be 15 minutes.  “Just talked about — things.  “Actually, it was very interesting, we talked about adoption.”
