PANO - Three ships of the Russian Navy’s Pacific Fleet, headed by Rear Admiral Yuldashev Aleksandr Yurevich, docked at Tien Sa port in the Central city of Da Nang on January 6th, beginning their four-day visit to Vietnam.

The ships are Bystry destroyer, Boris Butoma tanker and Altay tugboat.

The Russian guests were welcomed by representatives from the Department of External Relations under the Ministry of National Defence, the Naval Region 3 Command, the Da Nang city’s Military Command and the Border Guard Command, and the Russian Consulate General in the city.

During the visit, they are scheduled to meet with leaders of the city People’s Committee, the Military Zone 5 Command and the Naval Region 3 Command, lay a flower wreath at the city’s Monument for Heroic Martyrs, have sports exchanges with troops of the Naval Region 3 Command, and visit landmarks in the city.

The visit of the Russian naval force will contribute to further promoting the defence cooperation relationship between the two countries in general and the two navies in particular.
