10:19 am
going to be more observers this time around. is that right? well that's exactly right. as you just mentioned, i carry that these are the largest exercises. this is the largest iteration of this car. rude, a shield that we've ever seen. these exercises have been held since the early 2, thousands and in their early stages. they were really just a bilateral exercise. now we are seeing perhaps a move towards if many lateralism involving other countries, not just as observers, but as participants as well, significantly a, quite a few milestones at this august. as this training begins here in indonesia, we have more than 5000 personnel participating. the majority from indonesia and from the u. s. significantly, the australian army participating for the 1st time japan participating for the 1st time and also a number of countries at least 13 observing and in some capacity that includes
10:20 am
france, canada and, and, and also include some of indonesia, smaller neighbors, including tim or less, a, or east timor and puppy new guinea as well. and the reason it is significant to note those observers is that last year, at that time, it was the, the largest iteration of these gruder shield exercises. last year. japan was an observer. now they have gone on to become a full participant in these exercising exercises early today. they participated in some para trooping training just held here in san sumatra. so of course, this iteration of grid a shield is being called super gruder shield because it is so much larger than exercises that had been held in the past. earlier today at the opening her ceremony, we heard from general charles flinn, who noted that these exercises are taking place place in the most consequential region at the most consequential time. and while this might be the super gruder shield, they hope that next year's versions or future future iterations may be even more significant. so at a much larger scale and scope than even this years. these exercises, as you noted,
10:21 am
are taking place at a time of increased tension, not just between the u. s and china, but also between china and other countries in the region, particularly when it comes to this issue of maritime incursions into the south china sea. jessica wasn't and live in that bar to roger. thank you for that. the 1st cargo ship carrying grain to leave ukraine since russia invaded more than 5 months ago, is now in turkey. and inspection team has set off in a boat towards the missouri need to carry out the checks before the vessel heads on to lebanon. but the ship is being monitored by the new joint coordination center in is turnbow turkish, russian, ukrainian, and un stuff of that. as part of a deal find last month, an em, cassie oakley, joins us live now from a stumble. so to them, what's the latest you can tell us about this grange and well
