PORT KLANG: The 'Zheng He' ocean-going training vessel of the Chinese navy, which is currently on a round-the-world voyage, arrived at Port Klang Sunday.
Led by Rear Admiral Liao Shining, the ship's five-day visit to Malaysia is aimed at enhancing ties between the naval forces of China and Malaysia.
"The main purpose (of the trip) is to promote friendship between the Chinese and Malaysian navy, as well as demonstrate our resolution in promoting the concept of harmonious world, harmonious ocean," he told reporters.
The ship's crew members are scheduled to take part in several activities in Malacca, Putrajaya and Kuala Lumpur, including sports. They would also visit the National Hydrographic Centre.
The public may visit the vessel from 9am to 11.30am and from 2pm to 4.30pm on May 1. Admission is free.
Malaysia is the ship's second port of call after Vietnam. It began its journey on April 16, from Dalian city in northeast China's Liaoning Province.
The Zheng He is scheduled to journey more than 30,000 nautical miles and visit 11 countries within five months. - Bernama
