QINGDAO, April 26 (Xinhua) -- Chinese and Russian warships concluded a live ammunition exercise on Thursday, following a no-weapon joint war game earlier the same day.

Six warships, including the Chinese navy's missile destroyer DDG-112 Harbin and Slava-class guided missile cruiser Varyag, the flagship of the Russian Navy's Pacific Fleet, rendezvoused in the Yellow Sea and fired hundreds of shells at surface, underwater and air targets.

The conclusion of the drill marks the end of the live sea exercise of the April 22-27 naval exercise between Russia and China.

They also had a fleet review Thursday afternoon, involving 19 warships and 19 aircraft from both sides.

Earlier Thursday, exercises of joint escort and joint anti-hijacking were held involving no weapons.
