Inday Sara hopeful visit of three Chinese naval ships to open up communications with PH counterparts
The ongoing three-day goodwill visit of three Chinese naval vessels in Sasa Wharf, Davao City is a good start for the opening of communications between the Philippine Navy (PN) and the China People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Navy.
Thus, reckoned Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte in a Sunstar DAVAO online report dated April 30.
The lady politiko added that the visit was also a step toward better cooperation between countries, which are both involved in the West Philippine Sea dispute.
“Alam mo ina-acknowledge namin ang problema sa West Philippine Sea pero this is a good start of the opening of channels of communication between Chinese Navy and Philippine Navy so maybe they can sit down and talk with each other so alam nila anong gawin at magkakaintindihan sila,” she said in the same report.
Last April 30, three ships of the PLA Navy Task Group 150 docked at Sasa Wharf to begin a three-day goodwill visit.
The visiting Chinese ships are the guided-missile destroyer Chang Chun (DDG-150), guided-missile frigate Jin Zhou (FFG-532) and Type 903 replenishment ship Chao Hu (890).
