The "Qingdao" warship of the Navy of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) sailed slowly into the Port of Salalah in Salalah City, the second largest city of the Sultanate of Oman, for a three-day-long in-port rest and replenishment on the morning of July 1, 2012, local time. This is the 4th round and the last round of in-port rest and replenishment of the "Qingdao" warship of the 11th Chinese naval escort taskforce.

The "Qingdao" warship sailed slowly into the Port of Salalah under the guidance of local pilot at 08:30 am. Wu Jiuhong, the Chinese Ambassador to the Sultanate of Oman, and some leading officials of the China-funded institutions came to meet the ship.

Afterwards, Ambassador Wu Jiuhong and his party visited the "Qingdao" warship. Yang Junfei, commander of the 11th Chinese naval escort taskforce, and Xia Kewei, political commissar of the 11th Chinese naval escort taskforce, briefed them on related escort situation of the taskforce.

According to a briefing, the "Qingdao" warship will conduct equipment maintenance and material replenishment including fresh water, and the Chinese officers and men on the ship will be organized to go out for sightseeing in batches.

It is learned that after the rest and replenishment, the 11th Chinese naval escort taskforce will hand over the escort mission to the 12th Chinese naval escort taskforce in middle or late July in the Gulf of Aden and the waters off the Somali coast.
