The South Korean Navy’s chief of staff on Tuesday visited China to promote bilateral military ties and discuss ways to prevent maritime clashes in the Yellow Sea during peak fishing seasons, the Navy said.
On the first day of his four-day trip, Adm. Choi Yun-hee met Wu Shengli, commander in chief of the People’s Liberation Army Navy, in Shanghai to explore measures to curb naval clashes near the western sea border between Chinese fishermen and South Korean Coast Guards. The two discussed ways to expand joint anti-piracy efforts in the Gulf of Aden as well, the Navy said.
Choi will also have meetings with Chinese military leaders in Beijing to share their opinions about the current situation on the Korean Peninsula. (Yonhap News)
