PETER THE GREAT BAY, Russia, July 10 (Xinhua) -- Chinese and Russian naval forces participating in the "Joint Sea-2013" drills wrapped up three days of maneuvers here Wednesday.

The two sides practiced maritime search and rescue in the morning and later had a live-fire exercise involving air, sea-level and underwater targets.

The maneuvers, which started Monday, culminated at 15:10 local time (0410 GMT) in a joint naval parade performed by 13 warships from both countries and three aircraft.

During the previous two days, the two navies conducted a range of drills, including air-defense, maritime replenishment, countering submarine threats, joint escort, and rescuing of hijacked ships.
