China has planned to hold military drills around disputed Paracel Islands in the South China Sea ahead of a decision by an international court in Beijing’s dispute with the Philippines.

China holds exercises in the area, where its territorial claims overlap with Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan.

In a brief statement the Chinese said the drills would take place from 5 to 11 July and gave coordinates covering an area from the east of China’s Hainan Island down to and including the Paracels.
