Is the Russia-China strategic partnership turning into a military one?

In October, Russia and China conducted a week-long joint naval patrol — their first such exercise in the Western Pacific.

Five Russian and five Chinese warships sailed through the international waters of the Tsugaru Strait, which separates the main island of Japan from its northern island of Hokkaido, to “maintain peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region,” and to “demonstrate the state flags of Russia and China,” according to the Russian defense ministry. The Chinese defense ministry added that the joint exercise was also meant to “further develop the China-Russia comprehensive strategic partnership in the new era, enhance the joint action capabilities of both parties and jointly maintain international and regional strategic stability.”

But what is this “new era” comprehensive strategic partnership between Russia and China?
