Kuwait’s Ministry of Defense announced that the Kuwaiti Naval Force will be conducting a two-day live ammunition exercise on July 29th and 30th.

The exercise, part of Kuwait's emphasis on its defense sector, will start at six a.m. local time and would go on for 12 hours, ending at six p.m., Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported.

The shooting range would be 16.5 nautical miles east of Ras Al Julai'a to Qaruh Island, and six nautical miles east of Ras Azzour to Umm Al-Maradem Island, the Ministry of Defense Directorate of Moral Guidance and Public Relations said in a press statement.

To ensure maximum safety, the statement urged sea-goers to avoid the area during the announced dates.

Separately, Kuwait and China are bound to solid military relations and cooperation, a senior military officer said Monday.

Vice Admiral Abdullah Dashti, Director of Mubarak Al-Abdullah Command and Staff College, said China was a very important country for Kuwait and that they supported each other's issues in international conferences.

He speaking to reporters on sidelines of a reception held by the Military Attaché Office of the Chinese Embassy to mark the 88th Anniversary of the establishment of the Chinese People's Liberation Army.

Dashti said the Armies of Kuwait and China were bound to military cooperation agreements, including training and exercises.
