The missile frigate Yantai of the Navy of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) wrapped up its first visit to the Republic of Bulgaria and left the Port of Varna on August 9, 2012.

Avgustina Tzvetkova, Bulgarian deputy defense minister, spoke highly of the visit of the Chinese warship on August 8 at the reception held on the Yantai frigate. He held that the first visit of the Chinese warship to Bulgaria has far-reaching significance in further consolidating and developing the relations between the two countries and their militaries.

The frigate, one of the warships in the 11th Chinese naval escort taskforce of the PLA Navy which had just completed the escort missions in the Gulf of Aden and the waters off Somali coast, arrived in the Port of Varna on August 5. This is the first visit of the Chinese naval warship to Bulgaria since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries 63 years ago.
