Thursday marks the last day of the maritime drill between China and Russia navy forces. A naval parade has been held after live fire exercises between the two navies. CCTV’s Hou Na brings us the latest exclusive report from the Yellow sea.

Hou said, "Here I’m on board of warship Shenyang—the missile destroyer from China’s Beihai Fleet. It is 155 meters long, and 17 meters wide. This destroyer can provide air defense protection for the entire aircraft carrier fleet.

Just now, at around 14:30, I was here to watch a joint naval parade between the two navies. Altogether ,19 warships and 19 aircrafts from both navies have participated in the military march. They are divided into two formations. The first formation is guided by China’s missile destroyer Ha erbin, and followed by submarines and aircrafts and helicopters from the Chinese navy.

The second formation is from Russia Pacific fleet, guided its missile cruiser Varyag, and followed by three large anti-submarines. Together they have demonstrated tremendous power to form an air-sea defense system. The success of naval parade has marked the ending of the three-day joint maritime performances between the two navies.

In the past three days, Russian and Chinese navy forces have conducted operations on defense of air routes, and maritime traffic routes, search and rescue operations and anti-submarine tactics. All these subjects have brought precious experiences to the joint maritime operations and military-to-military cooperation between the two nations.

At the same time, China has demonstrated a more open and stronger navy to the rest of the world.”
