WASHINGTON: The world’s largest international maritime exercises, the Rim of the Pacific, will take place June 29 through Aug. 4 in and around Hawaii and Southern California, the US Navy said.

The RIMPAC exercises will bring together some 25,000 personnel from 26 countries including the Quad nations of Japan, the United States, Australia and India.

The partners “train and operate together in order to strengthen their collective forces and promote a free and open Indo-Pacific,” the US Navy’s 3rd Fleet said in a statement Tuesday.

China had participated in the biennial RIMPAC exercises in the past, but has not been invited since 2018 due to its militarization of the South China Sea.
