Chinese forces attending the drill, which is organized by the U.S. navy, will include a missile destroyer, a missile frigate, a supplier ship, a hospital ship and two vessel-carried helicopters, a special battle force and a diving force.

A medical forum will be held between the Chinese and the U.S. sides during the drill, which will include visits to each other's ships.

According to the drill schedule, naval forces from China, Singapore and Brunei will join a U.S. cruiser in waters off the coast of the territory of Guam in mid-June and then sail to Pearl Harbor in the U.S. state of Hawaii in formation.
