The Ministry of Defense of the Republic of South Africa informed that on February 17, the second joint naval exercise of Russia, China, and the Republic of South Africa started in the southern part of the Indian Ocean.
The USA has already responded to the fact of military exercises. David Feldman, the representative of the US Embassy in the Republic of South Africa, said that Washington is concerned about the plans of Russia, China, and the Republic of South Africa.
By the way, earlier the Minister of Defense of the South African Republic, Thandi Modise, admitted that the states are putting pressure on those African countries that maintain relations with Moscow.
It was noted that the joint exercises of South Africa, Russia, and China are causing concern in the US, as Washington is afraid of losing control of the Indian Ocean.
These exercises can be considered a response to the activation of the US in the region and the active exercises with South Korea and Japan.
