Chinese President Hu Jintao announced the start of a naval parade of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy warships and aircraft Thursday afternoon aboard a PLA Navy destroyer off the coast of Qingdao.

Hu, also chairman of the Central Military Commission, was accompanied by PLA Navy Commander Admiral Wu Shengli aboard the destroyer Shijiangzhuang.

The parade will display 25 naval vessels and 31 aircraft of the PLA Navy, including at least one of the country's nuclear submarines, as part of a celebration to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of the PLA Navy.

An international fleet inspection involving 21 foreign vessels from 14 countries will be held after the PLA naval parade.
