Russian and Chinese navies have plenty of contact points. NF ships as well as world's leading sea powers including China perform shipping security missions in the Gulf of Aden on the permanent basis. Chinese and Russian mariners effectively cooperate in that region for the sake of global community.

"We attach great importance to development of international cooperation with foreign navies, including Chinese one", emphasized NF Commander talking with the top-ranking guest.

After the protocol meeting, the Chinese delegation was invited to aircraft-carrying cruiser Admiral Flota Sovetskogo Soyuza Kuznetsov. Guests were shown aircraft takeoff/landing support systems, navigation bridge and air-traffic control tower. Then they watched concert of NF Song & Dance Company arranged in the hangar.
