Chinese ships to take part in Navy drills

Posted: Updated:

BEIJING (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Three Chinese ships are taking part in rare joint naval drills with the United States.

They're carrying out search-and-rescue drills in waters off of Hawaii. Then the ships will continue on to Australia and New Zealand for similar exercises.

Chinese military officials tell the military's official newspaper, People's Liberation Army Daily, that the U.S.-China drills build on a commitment to create stronger ties made by President Barack Obama and Chinese leader Xi Jinping at a June summit in California.
