MOSCOW, August 17. /TASS/. Seven Chinese warships will arrive in Vladivostok in the Russian Far East on August 20 to take part in the second stage of the Joint Sea 2015 naval drills in the Sea of Japan, spokesman for Russia’s Eastern Military District Roman Martov said on Monday.

"A group of seven ships from the Chinese Navy led by the frigate Shenyang will arrive in Vladivostok, the main naval base of the Pacific Fleet, on August 20 to take part in the Joint Sea 2015 (II) naval drills. Russia’s Guard Missile Cruiser Varyag will be the host ship for the visit," the spokesman said.

The visit by China’s warships will last until August 28, he said.

"Over this time, the guests will meet with the command of the Pacific Fleet and pay an official visit to the head of the city’s administration. The program envisages sports competitions and unofficial meetings of sailors from the navies of both countries," the spokesman said.

Russia and China held the first stage of the Joint Sea naval drills in the Mediterranean Sea in mid-May. The drills involved about ten warships from the Russian and Chinese navies.
