A rare multilateral maritime exercise, code-named Maritime Cooperation -2014’, was organised on 23 April 2014 by China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA)
This exercise was held on 65th anniversary of Chinese Navy and it was perceived as rare as the navies of India and Pakistan apart from those of Bangladesh, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei also took part in this exercise. The exercise was held off the coast of the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao. It focused on joint search and rescue, and included task force communication, formation movement, maritime replenishment supply, joint rescue, joint anti-hijacking and small firearms shooting. The exercises were aimed at enhancing mutual understanding, trust and friendship among maritime forces and promoting their cooperation in safeguarding maritime security to better respond to emergencies.
