Pakistan, China hold bilateral naval exercises

KARACHI: Pakistan and China began holding bilateral naval exercises on Saturday to enhance interoperability and operational understanding.

For this purpose, the Chinese 17th Navy Convoy Fleet, headed by Rear Admiral Deputy Chief of Staff East Sea Fleet Huang Xinjian arrived at Karachi today to participate in the exercise which includes an elaborate harbour and sea phase.

The exercise being first of the series is a landmark reflection of the historic ties between the two navies as well as a true manifestation of convergence of strategic interests of the two countries.

The bilateral naval exercise is unique in a way that it would cover the entire spectrum of multifaceted maritime operations involving Surface, Air and Special Forces elements.
