The "Huangshan" warship of the 13th escort taskforce under the Navy of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) berthed at the Djibouti Port of the Republic of Djibouti on the afternoon of December 1, 2012, local time, for a five-day-long port replenishment.

According to a briefing, this is the first port replenishment for the 13th Chinese naval escort taskforce since it set sail. During the replenishment, the taskforce will overhaul the equipment, replenish supplies and organize its officers and men to have sightseeing for the purpose of understanding local history, culture and customs.

While the "Huangshan" warship is taking a rest, the "Hengyang" warship and the "Qinghai Lake" supply ship will keep on escort missions.
