Chinese, Russian warships pass together through narrow Japanese strait for first time


Recommended Posts

TOKYO — A flotilla of Russian and Chinese warships transited a narrow waterway separating the major Japanese islands of Honshu and Hokkaido for the first time on record Monday, according to the Japanese government.

Five Russian and five Chinese vessels, including destroyers and frigates, passed through the Tsugaru Strait — 12 miles wide at its narrowest point — from the Sea of Japan to the Pacific Ocean, Japan’s deputy chief cabinet secretary Yoshihiko Isozaki said during a news conference Tuesday.
