The crews of Russian and Chinese warships held a training on fighting pirates during the Naval Cooperation 2015 joint naval exercise, Rear Admiral Viktor Kochemazov, Russian Command at the exercises, told journalists.

"Ships jointly completed a task on clearing a ship of pirates. They held trainings on inspection, arrest and escorting of a suspicious vessel. Additionally, they exercised a search operation for a ship in distress," Kochemazov said.

He reported that the training involved Russia’s guided missile cruiser the Moskva, the Ladny frigate, the Alexander Shabalin and Alexander Otrakovsky large amphibious ships, the Samum hover borne guided missile corvette, and the MB-31 navy tug.

The Chinese Navy was represented by the Linyi and Weifang frigates and Wei Shanhu, a replenishment ship.

Kochemazov added that early Thursday morning Russian and Chinese warships in four tactical units will hold maneuvering exercises in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea.
