    Three warships of the Peoples Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) arrived in the Karachi port on Saturday on a goodwill and training visit, said a statement released by the Pakistan Navy.

    The ships — Chang Chun, Jing Zhou and Chao Hu — are part of a task group commanded by Deputy Commander East Sea Fleet Rear Admiral Shen Hao.

    The statement said that the visiting task group will hold a passage exercise (PASSEX) with Pakistan Navy ships to enhance interoperability between the two navies.

    The men and officers of the visiting ships are also expected to hold professional discussions and interactions with their compatriots from the Pakistan Navy on subjects of mutual interest, it added.

    The visiting crews will take part in operational training activities, joint interactive sessions and table top discussions on professional topics.

    Official calls on senior PN officers and civilian dignitaries along with social events are also planned as part of the visit.

    Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral Muhammad Zakaullah also visited the ships of the Chinese flotilla and was presented with an guard of honour by a contingent of PLAN sailors.

    “Pak-China friendship is highly valued and the continued cooperation between them has proven to be a source of strength for both the countries,” said the naval chief.

    He added that the visit was “expected to enhance interoperability and maritime collaboration between the two navies”.
