A fleet from China's navy which participated in the Rim of the Pacific multinational naval exercise has returned to a military port in Zhoushan City in eastern China. The navy dispatched a missile destroyer, a missile frigate, a supply ship, a hospital ship, a submarine rescue vessel and two helicopters to participate in the drills.

The fleet left China on June 15th and took part in a series of exercises in cooperation with other navies, including naval blockade, seaborne supply, anti-piracy and submarine rescue operations. It's the second time China's navy has participated in RIMPAC, after its debut in 2014.
