ZHANJIANG, GUANGDONG - A bilateral exercise involving warships from the Singapore and Chinese navies was conducted in the East China Sea on Wednesday.

During the half-day exercise, the Republic of Singapore Navy's Formidable-class frigate, the RSS Intrepid, and the People's Liberation Army Navy's (Plan's) Jiangkai II-class frigate, Yulin, performed manoeuvre drills and small-arms firing.

Naval helicopters from both sides also landed on each other's warships.

The exercise followed a port call by the RSS Intrepid at the Ma Xie Naval Base in Zhanjiang from Aug 30, during which both navies engaged in exercise planning and ship visits.
