US and Japan conduct anti-submarine war drills on China’s doorstep

On Tuesday, U.S. and Japan started their first-ever joint anti-submarine warfare training exercise in the South China Sea — a sea region China has asserted is part of its maritime territory.

The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) announced the training exercise in a press release on Tuesday.

The anti-submarine drills saw the U.S. Arleigh Burke-class Aegis guided-missile destroyer USS Milius (DDG-69) and P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine warfare (ASW) aircraft join with the Japanese helicopter carrier JS Kaga, the Japanese destroyer JS Murasame and Japanese P-1 ASW aircraft. According to Radio Free Asia, the Japanese Oyashio-class submarine also participated in the drills.
