Chinese Navy begins live-fire drills near N. Korea

Beijing– China’s navy has begun four-day live-fire drills off the coast of North Korea as Pyongyang warned that Washington’s actions are pushing the region toward nuclear war.

The drills began Thursday off the coast of Lushun in China’s northeast province of Liaoning. Ahead of the exercise, an area of some 276 square kilometers was declared off limits, Chinese media reported, citing the country’s Maritime Security Agency.
