Three navy ships from the Chinese People’s Liberation Army will spend the next four days docked in Sydney. The ships are arriving in Sydney this morning for a brief stop-over on the way to China. They are returning from a mission to combat pirate activities in the Gulf of Aden between Yemen and the Horn of Africa.

Defence Minister Stephen Smith says China has a central role to play in maintaining regional security. He says both navies will share lessons learnt about anti-piracy operations during the four-day visit. The stop-over is one of a number of events planned this year to mark 40 years since the beginning of diplomatic relations between Australia and China.
