The tri-nation naval exercises between South Africa, China and Russia have kicked off in KwaZulu-Natal.
More than 350 South African army personnel will participate in the ten-day drill, which is being held in Durban and Richards Bay.
According to the SA National Defence Force Exercise Mosi II, which translates into smoke in Tswana, is aimed at sharing operational skills and knowledge among the countries.
This is the second time that a drill of this nature is being held. The first was in Cape Town in November 2019.
Last year South Africa held military exercises with the US which included a “humanitarian” component.
