World War III: Russia, Iran China Team Up For Terrifying Military Exercise

It has been reported that RUSSIA, Iran and China will today kick off a four-day joint military exercise in the Gulf of Oman and the Indian Ocean in a bid to bolster ties between the three countries’ navies.

The drills come as President Trump boosts the US military presence in Saudi Arabia by sending extra troops, as global tensions rise. China’s defence ministry said on Thursday said it would take part in the joint operation and downplayed its significance. Beijing will dispatch a guided missile destroyer known as the Xining.

Spokesman for China’s defence ministry Wu Qian described the movements as a “normal military exchange” between the three armed forces.
