QINGDAO, April 23 (Xinhua) -- Multi-country maritime exercises were held off the coast of the eastern Chinese city of Qingdao on Wednesday.

This is the first time for the People's Liberation Army Navy to organize multilateral maritime exercises.

Nineteen ships, seven helicopters and marine corps from eight countries including China, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Singapore, Indonesia, India, Malaysia and Brunei were organized into three task forces to conduct the exercises dubbed "Maritime Cooperation - 2014."

Focusing on joint search and rescue, the drills included task force communication, formation movement, maritime replenishment supply, joint rescue, joint anti-hijacking and small firearms shooting.

Chinese destroyer Harbin was designated as the command ship and Yang Junfei, deputy chief of the Beihai Fleet, as the exercise commander.

The exercises were aimed at enhancing mutual understanding, trust and friendship among maritime forces and promoting their cooperation in safeguarding maritime security to better respond to emergencies.
