VLADIVOSTOK, July 31 (RIA Novosti)
Two Chinese navy ships are taking part in the festivities dedicated to the celebration of the Russian Navy Day in the Far Eastern port of Vladivostok, a spokesman for Russia's Pacific Fleet said on Sunday.
Frigate Luoyang and training ship Zheng He arrived in Vladivostok on Friday. The ships are hosted by the Russian Udaloy class destroyer Admiral Vinogradov.
"The Chinese military delegation took part on Sunday in laying wreaths to the Glory of the Pacific Fleet memorial, commemorating Russian sailors who died defending their Motherland," Capt. 1st Rank Roman Martov said.
Russian and Chinese sailors will participate later on Sunday in a variety of cultural and sport events, formal and informal meetings, he said.
Chinese warships last visited Vladivostok in 2008.
