    The U.S. Navy coastguard cutter Sycamore began a three-day visit to Russia's Far East port of Vladivostok on Wednesday.

    VLADIVOSTOK, September 16 (RIA Novosti) - The U.S. Navy coastguard cutter Sycamore began a three-day visit to Russia's Far East port of Vladivostok on Wednesday.

    The ship was met by girls wearing U.S. and Russian national costumes and bearing salt and bread, a traditional Russian symbol of hospitality.

    Aside from a visit to a Russian coastguard vessel, the ship's crew will take part in sporting events with Russian border guards.

    Russian and U.S. border guards discussed on Tuesday cooperation in the fight against smuggling and poaching.
