Military forces from Japan and the U.S. will conduct a joint training exercise over the next two weeks on the southern coast of California, aiming to bolster marine attack capabilities, the Straits Times reported Monday.

The publication reports the first joint exercise between the two countries is intended to help Japan’s military respond to natural disasters.

Tai Ming Cheung, an analyst of Chinese and East Asian security affairs and director of the Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation at the University of California in San Diego, said China could perceive the cooperation differently.

Beijing and Tokyo have a long-running dispute concerning islands claimed by both in the East China Sea, according to the Straits Times.

China reportedly asked the U.S. and Japan to cancel the drill.
