Following Moscow and Damascus, Beijing refuted the information recently emerged in media that Russia, China, Syria, and Iran were allegedly about to hold joint military exercise in Syrian territory, reported Xinhua referring to Chinese foreign ministry.

According to a spokesman for Chinese foreign ministry, that information is in contrary to fact.

On Tuesday it was also confuted by Russian defense ministry, reported Vzglyad. "The only correct thing in those reports is that landing ship Kaliningrad is really serves in Baltic Fleet", said the ministry's spokesman.
