Mucklow and his officers, who were welcomed by the North China Fleet of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) at a function upon their arrival, met with Major General Chen Axi, vice commander of the North China Fleet.

During the visit, navy men from the two countries are expected to visit the vessels and play basketball and hold tug-of-war contests.
